10/2017 – COLLABORATION
An interactive and sonically reactive installation piece
The brief 'Emergence' within the elective 'Decomputation' led to the experimentation with materials in order to discover emergent qualities. Emergence often implies characteristics such as collective behaviour, collective intelligence and self-organisation. This artwork makes ferrofluid respond to sound parameters such as amplitude and beat. Music is being translated into a 'paintscape', drawn by reactive ferrofluid and white paint.
In collaboration with Andrew Dhesi and Milda Samsonaite.
Experimenting with ferrofluid
Ferrofluid is able to change its form depending on a given magnetic force. Spikes emerge out of the smooth liquid, rotating occasionally depending on the position of the magnet. The ability to move concentrations of ferrofluid through other liquids led to experimentations of using this magnetic substance to draw patterns.
