I’m researching ferrofluid in hopes of creating (a) an installation of magnetized fluid and audio (a.k.a. Liquid Audio) and (b) creating a computational couture design utilizing this ridiculously beautiful and responsive material.

Ferrofluid is a interactive liquid that is powerfully magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. Ferrofluids are colloidal liquids made of nanoscale ferromagnetic particles suspended in a carrier fluid (usually an organic solvent or water.) Large ferromagnetic particles can be ripped out of the homogeneous colloidal mixture, forming a separate clump of magnetic dust when exposed to strong magnetic fields.
