Macabre Ferrofluid Artworks
Schizophrenia by Alessandro Brighetti Revolves Around a Skull

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jun 20, 12

Schizophrenia by Alessandro Brighetti is a unique artwork that manipulates ferrofluids by way of electromagnetics in order to create a macabre display worthy of a cinematic horror film. While ferrofluid has been artistically explored by such individuals as David Markus and Sachiko Kodama, this sculpture has taken a particularly sinister turn.

Recently presented during the Scope Basel 2012 exhibition in Switzerland, Schizophrenia by Alessandro Brighetti revolves around the form of a skull while a similar creation centers on a brain. Working closely with a chemist, the oil-like liquid moves sinuously over the skull and brain disturbingly.

Schizophrenia by Alessandro Brighetti is yet another example of scientific-based artwork in his impressive oeuvre. With medicine in his family background, he endeavors to bring science to imagination and art to reason.
