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.

    Hello Greg,
    I love the coloring in this photo, almost a harsh lined gradient from dark to light. I would have never thought to do this with the ferrofluid. The texture you were able to get in the brown color is very appealing, it is almost life-like.

    I love the color gradient from the dark black at the top, the brown of the fluid itself, and the stark white at the bottom of the image. I think this adds visual interest to the image and helps to emphasis the phenomenon occurring within the fluid itself.

    I love this photo and the contrast between the back and white coloring. The fluid flow reminds me of a tree forest after the leaves have fallen. The uniqueness of this image is something I wouldn’t have thought to appreciate, but knowing it was the “remains” of another project you worked on is so interesting.

    I love the contrast in this photo and how it shows such an interesting shape of flow.
