Charles Sowers designs museum exhibits that offer hands-on experience. The images above are samples of what you’ll see if you ever get your own hands on his ferrofluid exhibit.

How it works:

These 2 cells are backlit by a 1” thick light table. The visitor holds a tethered magnet beneath the table to make the ferrofluid turn from a uniform circular blob to a convoluted labyrinth pattern.

If you can’t experience it for yourself, at least you can see it in motion here.
