Physics class was never this fun

The most interesting production in the Detroit Institute of Arts' Action - Reaction video installation exhibit (which runs through Jan. 3) has to be Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss's, who take science experiments to a whole new level and in such a fascinating way. Their 31-minute film will have your jaw dropping as you await what happens next in their assembly line of physics and chemistry experiments that show the effect of one action on another, whether it be tires, weights, fire or chemical explosions - using household objects like step ladders, balloons and pop bottles - as one action causes a reaction, causing another action, causing - you guessed it - all down the line. Physics class was never this fun. (
