That's actually very pretty and downright surreal.

If you and tugrik are bored some time, mix iron filings with vegetable oil and move magnets around the outside of the container };>. Many nifty things can be done with both electrically and magnetically responsive liquids. SciAm had an article about using photocopier toner to make electrically responsive liquids a while back, if memory serves. Last I heard someone used magnetically responsive liquids to make a signboard with a surface that literally crawled around, which was very cool-looking.
