Magnetic Studies

Above is a series of studies showing the possibilities for a new body of work exploring magnetism, fluid dynamics and the tension between order and chaos. The work will consist of a series of kinetic sculptures. These studies depict flat porcelain components, each with a magnet embedded into it. The porcelain is tethered but floats on a liquid allowing them to jostle and dance. The arrows give an indication of the magnetic fields along with the complex fluid dynamics at play.
