Magnetic fields distort a metallic liquid into spectacular shapes that visualise magnetism in three dimensions.
Series: PHENOMENA, Episode 6: MAGNETISM, Runtime: 04:43
Magnetism is an invisible and influential force. It’s attractive and repulsive properties are revealed with a special metallic liquid called ‘ferrofluid’ which becomes magnetic when inside a magnetic field. Using powerful electromagnets, the strength and direction of the magnetic fields are varied to manipulate the ferrofluid. It twists and distorts into the shape of the field, revealing the influence of magnetism in three dimensions.
Specially filmed using a state of the art motion control and a high speed ‘Phantom Flex4K’ camera, the movement and patterns of the fluid look alien and otherworldly.
