Magnetic Fields of Robert Hodgin

It’s wonderfully fun when science and art mesh as one. Unlimited are the possibilities for making beautiful geometric constructions.
Combining & connecting thousands of small magnetized spheres and cylinders, Robert Hodgin has devised an array of stunning geometric sculptures -- amazingly held together with only the power of magnetism.
A delicate and tenuous balance is maintained; I can imagine these things easily falling apart with the slightest movement, shift in pressure, or deviation of magnetic force.
The intricate planning and craftsmanship involved is impressive.
Sci-fi coolness.
