I really like the work of Tatiana Plakhova and have been following her Flickr stream since last year. Some of her images make me think of alien life forms or cities of the distant future. The one on the top right here below reminds me of Cerenkov Radiation.
Using her image from the top left above as inspiration I created a simple animation that tries to recreate her style. This video isn't great quality but seems to get the idea across.
