Magnet Drawing Machines

A few days ago I luckily stumbled upon some interesting artworks by Jesse Houlding, whose kinetic sculptures perfectly combine art and science by using iron filings, magnetism and motion to draw on paper. "As the magnets move, the friction between the iron and the paper makes different kinds of marks depending on the strength of the magnetic field."

I love these drawings because of their purity, grace and tenderness.  

Below you can watch Jesse's kinetic sculpture 'Loop' in action.
