Video: Magnetic Ferro Fluids

Kim Pimmel has posted several magnetic short films that he calls “analog generative experiments.” In the first one (above), “ferrous printer toner particles floating on the surface of water are attracted by a magnet and align to the invisible magnetic field around them.” The resulting patterns and textures are incredible.

In the second clip, Pimmel combined dish soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid and filmed it with a macro lens to create some astonishing effects. It's hard to believe, but neither of these videos was digitally manipulated.
