In “Millefiori” artist Fabian Oefner mixes watercolors with ferrofluids to create bright fluid microcosms.  Each photograph represents an area about the size of a thumbnail.  Ferrofluids contain iron-based nanoparticles suspended in a carrier fluid and thus respond to magnetic fields. They can form sharp pointslabyrinthine mazes, or even brain-like patterns depending on the magnetic field and the substances surrounding them.  For more on this art project, see this interview with the artist. (Photo credit: Fabian Oefner)
