Thin structures buckle out of plane when compressed, giving rise to a myriad of shapes. When a floating elastic sheet is compressed, many fine-scale wrinkles form to minimize the amount of underlying fluid that must be moved. In this talk, I will investigate how these wrinkle patterns evolve dynamically. I will present experiments carried out in the Mathematical Observatory in Oxford, and outline mathematical models that decribe them, using a combination of scaling arguments, asymptotics and numerical solution.
