2 min loop projection

observing the serenity that can be achieved through chaos a vortex is created in a bottle using spinning magnets. Projected on to a wall using a small 6v 5w bulb. Projection is that of a tornado shaped shadow. After two minutes the motor stops, vortex slows and stops. As the fluid slows and stops the refractive and reflective qualities of the water and glass effect the projection in a way that a dance of light reminiscient of the Aurora Borealis is projected.The dance stops the motor starts again.
