Compressed 02: Time-Lapse Ferrofluid Moving in Soap Bubbles
What’s better than a regular time-lapse movie? Why, a macro time-lapse movie starring ferrofluid and soap bubbles, of course! Kim writes:
I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.
Time-lapse sequences: Nikon D90, Nikkor 60mm macro lens and custom built intervalometer.
Motion-control: Arduino driven scanner platform and mirror rigs
Score: Ableton Live

Really stunning video. I wonder how a shaken solution containing the surfactant and ferrofluid would react to the addition of a magnetic field. Could well be fairly dull with the surfactant binding to the oil and the toner coming out of solution to form film or such I suppose but I’d be interested to find out!
