Russell Garehan's 'Ferrocious' is Blending Artwork, Science and Movement

Russell Garehan's dancing sound sculpture called the 'Ferrocious' may sound and look like a strange device, but for what this product may lack in appearance, it more than makes up for it with Garehan's ingenious design that sees this artistic scientist combining the principles of mechanics, movement and art in one magnificent machine.

Gerahan describes Ferrocious as an "electronic ferrofluid sculpture that responds to sound," and for those of you not in the know, 'ferrofluid' is an electromagnetic goo that Gerahan himself only discovered about a year ago on YouTube.

Featuring a stylish open circuit board display, Gerahan's dancing sound sculpture has a built-in microphone and 3.5 mm audio jack that translates music and voice vibrations into movements that literally sees this creation jittering to any beat.
