Oefner’s alchemical magic is created by mixing a ferrofluid with water colors in a magnetic field. The field causes the iron particles in the ferrofluid to lose their minds and start to rearrange themselves to form the black channels you see below, while the colors are injected into it using a syringe. The result is these technicolor, eye candy images, which feature chromatic channels that look like the Google Maps of planet psychedelia or the dissected brain of the Cat in the Hat. Do your eyes a favor and take a look below.
