Building Ferrofluid Sculptures

Featured Video Play Icon

Eric Mesplé is an artist, but he’s also a blacksmith, welder, programmer, engineer, and innovator. Many of his sculptures feature ferrofluids, magnetic liquid whose movement is driven by electromagnets Mesplé designs and builds himself. In this video from Wired, we get a behind-the-scenes look at some of his work, and to me, one of the big takeaways is just how clearly science, engineering, and technology are married to art in Mesplé’s work. I imagine this is true of many of today’s artists! (Video credit: Wired)
