Sam Lewitt's artwork Fluid Employment was shown at the 2012 Whitney Biennial in New York. For this piece, Lewitt's subject is ferrofluid, a liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field because of the tiny magnetic particles that are suspended in the carrier liquid. Ferrofluid is used in a variety of applications, including electronic devices, analytical instrumentation, optics, and aerospace. Sam Lewitt's installation combines miniature ferrofluid sculptures with fans that manipulate the form of the objects in regular intervals.
