...or a visual representation of smectic-like Langmuir-Blodgett films? We report, you decide.
Taken from the liquid-crystal group at Universität-Hamburg. They have a little feature called "LC in Daily Life" where they show real-world, artistic representations of various liquid-crystal phases. Some are really clever (chiral doping in smectic phases), some are weird (discotic CT complex), some are Milkshake-level weird (Smectic A), and some have nudity (smectic C ftw!).
