Sachiko Kodama's Sculpture Garden is an example of how scientific investigation can expand the expressive vocabulary of today’s artists. Kodama works with Ferrofluids, which are liquids that, due to their metallic content, hold magnetic properties and respond to magnetic fields by vibrating and changing shape. By means of computer systems, the artist controls the strength of these magnetic fields in order to control the liquid’s response with precision.
The exhibit opens today at Barcelona's ArtFutura, a festival that documents the role of technology in society, culture, and art.
