Ferrolic is the brain child of designer Zelf Koelman. The display is like an aquarium, with Ferro Fluid at the front and powerful electromagnets in the back shaping the liquid, giving the material a very organic behaviour. A good video of what the display can do is here. Prototypes are for sale for €7,500.

Because the fluid behaves in an unpredictable way, it is possible to give the bodies, perceived in the Ferrolic display, a strong reference to living creatures. It is this lively hood that enables Ferrolic to show a meaningful narrative such as having the creatures play tag. In addition the natural flow of the material, Ferrolic can be used to form recognisable shapes and written characters. Ferrolic uses both information-layers in parallel in order to display scenes and transitions in a poetic, almost dance like, choregraphed way.
