Amazing video: Magnetic fields made visible

Magnetic fields are all around us, but they're usually invisible. Not when British filmmakers Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt get a hold of them. Their film group, called Semiconductor, created "Magnetic Movie," where they've turned audio recordings of magnetic fields into arty animations. This innovative work won them honors as Best Film at Cutting Edge at the British Animation Awards 2008.

Next, these creative filmmakers might want to scare up everyone with animation of the waves swirling around all of us 24/7 from cell phones, television, power lines, microwaves, radio and the sun. Let's just hope all this stuff doesn't cause cancer. Either way, any more movies like this one, and we'll all feel like wearing tinfoil hats.
