In this video, we show the dynamics that arise in aqueous dextran-gelatin phase-separated systems when the separate phases are extracted into a sessile drop configuration. The subsequent flow of fluid that develops was quite unexpected and we are investigating the phenomena further in the Fuller laboratory.
