    The artist Sachiko Kodama specializes in kinetic sculptures using ferrofluids; they often look rather like the video cited here but more elegant (being carefully designed rather than made out of a meat grinder and a plastic tub ;-) This video is a good example of her work.

    My favorite part is the cheesy guitar. I thought that was the 90210 these song for a moment.

    Wow! I love how it looks like a creepy, spiky snake slithering. Beautiful

    Perfect – a science experiment that’s also geigereque art!

    The hand toying with the meat grinder (ugh! How CAN anyone eat the stuff?) and the spectral, spooky music – the building blocks of a nightmare.

    That’s from the how to….

    “Several people have asked me if they can make substitutions for the oleic acid and the kerosene.”

    Holy shit, can you guys light this stuff on fire for next weeks experiment?

    My favorite part of this is the hand, reaching hesitantly into the frame, slowly caressing the curves of the screw, languidly rolling it back and forth. Clearly this experiment was more fun stoned.

    That stuff is bad ass. I’d buy some but would probably spill it somewhere.

    Oh sure, all fun and games until it assembles and starts looking for John Connor.
