Funky Ferrofluids Here is a selection of some colorful photographs. The shapes are achieved by an experimental mixture of ferrofluid and colored water. Ferrofluids are liquids that react to external magnetic fields and then take on the most amazing shapes. The photographs are made by the Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner.

The shapes, you see in this image are about the size of a thumbnail. They are created by mixing ferrofluid with water color and putting it into a magnetic field. Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity similar to motor oil. When put under a magnetic field, the iron particles in the solution start to rearrange, forming the black channels and separating the water colors from the ferrofluid. The result are these peculiar looking structures.
