Ferrofluids are colloidal suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles. Ferrofluids respond to an external magnetic field enabling the solution's location to be controlled through the application of a magnetic field.
See sculptures created from ferrofluids, "Morpho Towers — Two Standing Spirals" (2006-2007).
