Alcohol as Art?

This isn't new (although it is to me), but I'm assuming that most of you haven't seen it yet. The images in this video were taken with a 35mm camera in Florida State University's chemistry department, and according to the company, Bevshots, founder, what we're seeing in these "alcohol under the microscope shots" are the "crystallized carbohydrates that have become sugar and glucose."

Here is more info on the history of the company (which sells prints and clothing made from the images) along with more images. If you go to the home page, you can even choose your images based on color or particular drinks.

It's kind of weird, but they look awesome. Kind of a fun concept, too (I thought).
