Iridescent art by James Ossi at MIT

Iridescence is a quality whereby certain surfaces appear to change color as the angle of view changes. Over the years, I have spent hours studying the subject of this photograph, which is a joyful art/science piece/experiment by James Ossi at MIT. These ever-changing soap films, their color and detail and dynamism from every angle, are just a small part of the infinity of nature that inspires me with awe at the glory of God.

“O SON OF LOVE! Thou art but one step away from the glorious heights above and from the celestial tree of love. Take thou one pace and with the next advance into the immortal realm and enter the pavilion of eternity. Give ear then to that which hath been revealed by the pen of glory.” Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, #7, from the Persian.
