21st Century Art

The truth is this is not completely an original idea from the 21st century. However, the Use of magnets to create art that is remincent of something H.R. Giger would paint should still be noteworthy.

"science, technology and art rises like an eccentric thorny botanical form within the world of most peculiar botanical forms housed in the Cactus Conservatory. Employing electromagnets and magnetically-charged microfine particles suspended in oil set in motion through a computer controller, Kodama, who is associate professor at Tokyo’s University of Electro-Communications, explores an entirely new territory where the seductive glossy black liquid seems to turn into rows of solid spikes impeccably organized around a spiraling cone, only to dissolve abruptly into obvious liquidity once again –a rhythmic flow and ebb, an alchemic dance where the artist playfully communicates basic principles of physics without elucidating them."

*UPDATE: Talking about H. R. Giger just reminded me that the Playstation 3 has an Ad on television created by a production company called Superfad that appears to have been very strongly influenced by H. R. Giger.
