Magnetic Waltz


Magnetic Waltz is an interactive kinetic sculpture based on ferrofluid (a magnetic liquid) which invites participants to explore the bizarre interplay of magnetics, gravity, and fluid mechanics. The ferrofluid dances and twirls, choreographed via hidden electronically-controlled magnets. This mesmerizing display seems to defy the laws of physics, and it invites participants to take a closer look and question their perceptions. What is it made of? How does it ooze and flow against gravity so? Why does it form those beautifully intricate labrynthian patterns? Is it alive? Will it be my friend?
