In “Ferienne” artist Afiq Omar utilizes ferrofluids, magnetism, and vibration to create analog visual effects. Most of the dot and labyrinthine patterns result from the reaction of a ferrofluid submerged in a nonmagnetic fluid to an external magnetic field.  Diffusion effects and surface tension instabilities are also visible in the way the darker ferrofluid breaks down in the carrier fluid. Also be sure to check out Omar’s previously featured fluid film “Ferroux”. (Video credit: Afiq Omar)
