Iron Filings Move to Music in a Kinetic Art Installation by TechnoFrolics

Iron filings move to music in a choreographed iron dust installation that was recently exhibited at World Maker Faire in New York City. The movement of the iron filings is dictated by computer-controlled electromagnets. The installation was created by TechnoFrolics design studio back in 1989 and, over the years, it has been exhibited at a variety of educational centers, trade shows, and other venues.
