    The course will be loosely inspired by the movie (and the book) The Man who Fell to Earth in which David Bowie plays an extraterrestrial visitor...
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    From cecilia's personal cargo

    This is a beautiful image of ferro-fluid, which is apparently "magnetic particles suspended in fluid" taken from the National Geographic website here: http://seabed.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/wallpaper2.tmpl?issue_id=20051101&week=1&priority=1



    Here's a video of ferrofluid in action.

    another user (shawnwe) posted about it a little while ago too. there are some really amazing geometric shapes you can create with it. he posted a few videos that show more of the substance's three dimensional abilities. check out the videos here:

    ferrofluid 1 - and - ferrofluid 2
