kodama/the art and science of ferrofluid

‘The aim of The Art and Science of Ferrofluid is to create dynamic art forms and figures whose shape, surface structure, and color change dynamically, reflecting the echoes of environmental music, light, and human communication. To create such dynamic forms and surfaces, in 2000 I initiated the interactive art project Protrude, Flow, in which I use ferrofluids.’

‘Ferrofluids appear as black fluid and are made by dissolving nanoscale ferromagnetic particles in a solvent such as water or oil. They remain strongly magnetic even in a fluid condition which makes them more flexible than iron sand.’

- Sachiko Kodama
