Observe these gorgeous Rorshach mold blots blooming their way across the pages of old books. A video by Ben Hemmendinger, found on Vimeo.
The piece is titled "Edelfäule," which a little Googling reveals to be German for "noble rot" -? "referring to BOTRYTIS CINEREA, the beneficial mold responsible for the TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE wines." (Epicurious Wine Dictionary).
Thanks Alex for the link!
