Fabien Oefner: Millefori

Absolutely incredible photography by Swiss photographer Fabien Oefner. The series below, named Millefiori, of close up watercolour mixed with ferrofluid, are incredibly bright and so mesmerizing I could stare at them all day!

The artist states about the project:
The shapes, you see in these 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.
