Millefiori - Fabian Oefner

I can't stop looking through Fabian Oefner's work, he has some incredible projects. These photographs are a little hard to get your head around, as they look so bizarre. The structure itself looks as if its from another planet. Or something infectious under a microscope. But the vibrant colours in the images contradict this assumption and give the photographs a beautiful aesthetic. I'm not even going to attempt to explain how this works, instead you can read about the project and watch a short video on Fabian's website, and also check out this review from its nice that. 

"The shapes, you see in these image are about the size of a thumbnail. They are created by mixing ferrofluid with water color and putting it into a magnetic field.
Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity similar to motor oil. When put under a magnetic field, the iron particles in the solution start to rearrange, forming the black channels and separating the water colors from the ferrofluid. The result are these peculiar looking structures."
