Dynamics of the drying process 20x

The video shows the self assembly of the microshutters into paired ones (Yin-Yang shape) during the drying process in a gaseous environment of isopropanol vapour. As seen the upper row of microshutters is brought down by means of surface tension to get in contact with the lower row of microshutters allowing the self assembly process.
