Greta Cukrov, featured ILCC liquid crystal artist, April 2017
Jury comment: I chose this, simply because I thought that it is interesting. There is a certain periodicity in the formation of the filaments from the surrounding round capillary wall. Interestingly, the surface of the liquid crystal also shows the periodic morphology of a peculiar complex structure. Are there any important insights into the physical properties of the Ntb phase hidden in the picture?
