    DYNAMIC SCULPTURE
    Sachiko Kodama

    This work is conceptualized as an "organic tower." The magnetic fluid, with a smooth black surface that seems to draw you in, reaches the top of the tower, spreading like a fractal, defying gravity. The form and texture of the physical surface of the tower constantly alter between the hard iron core and the changing form of soft fluid. This is a dynamic sculpture, with reactable fluid surface

    2002 M.I.T. FLUID MOTION EXPERIMENT

    A fluorocarbon-based ferrofluid, with about 400-G saturation magnetization and low field magnetic susceptibility of 3, is placed within a glass Hele-Shaw cell of 1.1-mm gap. Magnetic fields are applied that have in-plane clockwise rotating and dc axial magnetic fields.

    INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION
    Sachiko Kodama + Minako Takeno

    Protrude Flow expresses the dynamics of fluid motion of physical material, the dynamics of organic, wild shapes and movements of liquid by means of digital computer control. Protrude Flow uses magnetic fluid, sound, and moving images. Affected by the sounds and spectators' voices in the exhibition place, the three-dimensional patterns of magnetic fluid transform in various ways, and simultaneously its flowing movement and dynamic transformations are projected on the wide screen.

    DESIGN COLONY SKETCH
    Incorporating organic architecture from coral reef colonies and inspired by patterns created by diffuse limited aggregation, these are some prototypes of the organic inspired design. Fragmentation, Diffusion, and Aggregation are key words for my interpretation of organic-inspired design.
