About the artist

Fabian Oefner is a curious investigator, photographer and artist, whose work moves between the fields of art and science. His images capture in unique and imaginative ways natural phenomena that appear in our daily lives, such as sound waves, centripetal forces, iridescence, or the unique properties of magnetic ferroliquids. His exploration of the unseen and poetic facets of the natural world is an invitation, as he says, "to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us."
Oefner's photographs have been featured in renowned print and online media such as New Scientist, FOCUS, Huffington Post and BBC Online. He has also been invited to present his work at various events, including TED. Besides pursuing his own projects, he collaborates with influential international brands on ad campaigns and art projects. Oefner works and lives in Switzerland.
