Photographer Fabian Oefner Combines Science and Art

It’s no surprise that we enjoy the combination of science and art  and these images by Fabian Oefner are exactly that. Oefner comes from an art and design background but has always been interested in science. His images generally depict a scientific concept, however you don’t need to know the scientific background to see the beauty in his images.

As he explains in his TED talk the goal of his work is to speak to the viewer’s heart as well as their brain. For instance, the image above is created with ferrofluid which is a magnetic substance. After placing a magnet beneath the fluid and adding watercolor paint to the substance you can see the patterns and shapes begin to form. You don’t need to know that ferrofluid is hydrophobic (it won’t mix with water) to see that this image is stunning, but when you do know that the details in the image become much more evident.

Check out a few of his other images below to see the many ways science and art can collide.
