The Three Graces

The Three Graces, 2016, 30x30x3 cm, glass, ferrofluid, interactive robotics

The interactive reinterpretation of the decorative fresco “The Three Graces” in the Rudolfinum Gallery works on the principle of Ferrofluid (suspension consisting of magnetic nanoparticles) controlled by a simple robot that is installed under the glass vessel containing the fluid. The figures of the Graces have been engraved (copied) in the bottom of the vessel concavely, so that the hollows can be filled with Ferrofluid. The fluid is then manipulated with magnets under the table reacting to the viewer’s movements. This way, the figures are animated in a specific way, and thanks to the black fluid moving up and down in their bodies, they seem to be “dancing”.
