Psychedelic nano-art in oils and ferrofluids

This psychedelic landscape ain’t your daddy’s watercolours. For one thing, the black lines you see are a ferrofluid, a mixture of oil and nanoscale iron particles that responds to a magnetic field. These fluids are normally used to seal computer hard drives or as a contrast medium in medical imaging, but their weird ways mean they show up in artworks, too.”
