White Black Box

Magnetism is a physical phenomenon that manifests itself as a force effect between magnets, magnetized or magnetizable objects and moving electrical charges, such as current-carrying conductors. In addition to this definition, much more can be learned about the structure and nature of magnets in physics lessons. The White Black Box concept has so far included two papers, but these are not primarily for learning purposes. Rather, the properties of attraction and repulsion are put into an aesthetic context here. The structure is designed so that the installation can constantly reinvent itself and appear differently. Thus the spectrum ranges from dancing needles and balls to twitching chains and pulsating liquids and shavings.
