Fluid Dynamics- Reynolds Number - Sixty Symbols

My artwork is hugely influenced by the images taken from fluid dynamics experiments. I am no mathematician and the science behind these experiments is something that I can only gather in an intuitive sense. But it is very interesting to me that the very same physics are at work in something as small as cream being poured into a cup of coffee and something as astronomically large as the Great Red Spot on the planet Jupiter.
Wind blowing over volcanoes, planes flying through air and Jupiter's Great Red Spot. A Reynolds Number plays a role in all of them. More at
