Installation 2013

This multimedia installation is based on research and experiments with different kinds of microfluids and nanomaterials. Ferrofluids, which react as a live, generative responsive surface to the electromagnetic waves, will produce esthetic micro-landscapes. The installation consists of small-size petridishes with nanorobots positioned inside the larger petridish containing ferrofluids. The microscopic camera, connected to the computer through a projector, shows reactions on the nano-level, where chemical processes function under different laws. The ferrofluids are driven by a magnet, and the nanobots by peroxide.
