Watch This Art Installation Made With Moving Rocket Fuel

In the 1960s NASA invented a new liquid called ferrofluid to be used as rocket fuel for spaceships. As this video suggests, its purpose has shifted quite fluidly into other fields. In fact, ferrofluid has found a place in electronics, mechanical engineering, medical science, and—unexpectedly—art. Working with the unique properties of the substance, which changes form when exposed to a magnetic field, Japanese artist Sachiko Kodama has made it into one of her preferred mediums.
