This image captures the interesting patterns in a ferrofluid after a smooth board is lifted off it. The fluid was originally sandwiched between a whiteboard and a plastic pane and once the pane was lifted, these beautiful patterns began to form around the outer edges of the pool of fluid. The original plan for our setup was to use magnets to produce cool shapes in the ferrofluid, but we were having a very hard time actually finding a way to create the shapes we had envisioned.
