Mesmerizing art created with magnetic liquid – CNET

Also, get an inside look at how these pieces are created from conception to execution. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so trying to describe how entrancing these sculptures are would take millions. Take a look at the video to understand more. 
This material creates an otherworldly pattern when exposed to a magnetic field. Mesplé has used ferrofluid to create interactive art. One of his works is known as “Ferreflection Pool.” It can show a viewer a silhouette of themselves by using 320 electromagnets. You’ll see that and more in this video.

Eric Mesplé has become a master of making fascinating kinetic sculptures by using a material known as ferrofluid. Ferrofluid was invented by a NASA engineer in an attempt to develop a method for manipulating rocket fuel in zero gravity.
