This photograph captures the intriguing designs that emerge in a ferrofluid when a magnet is within close proximity. This action caused the viscous fluid to stretch out to the magnet imitating mini stalagmites. Initially, the ferrofluid was coated on the magnet of a magnetic part holder. Once coated, we used a hook magnet and approached the coated magnet. These exquisite patterns began to take shape along the edge of the magnet. Originally, our intention was to utilize magnets to generate a porcupine-like shape from the ferrofluid. We encountered unforeseen challenges such as the liquid being more viscous than anticipated. However, when improvising our original intention, this fascinating shot was taken.
