The huge magnet MONOLITH makes for interesting chain structures

I've been a fan of supermagnete.de for years and have a large collection of neodymium magnets that I integrate here and there. At the end of 2011, a good friend gave me the "MONOLITH" magnet (which is unfortunately sold out by now, but it should also work with the successor MONOLITH 3). It is impressive due to its extremely strong adhesive force, but that was also the reason why I couldn't find a useful application for it. Hence, I created a small and modifiable piece of art: "Hair-Raising."
I attached a perforated metal plate to the Plexiglas cover of the bottom piece. A 10 cm long chain dangles from every hole. I just brought a magnet (not the MONOLITH :-)) to the hardware store to find a chain that is light and magnetic. Unfortunately, most are only weakly magnetised. In the end, I chose a brass-plated chain.
