Plexiglas pieces are attached to the wall approximately every 2.5".  In between each piece of Plexiglas is a rare earth magnet, and on either side of the Plexiglas pieces are iron filings.  The filings and the magnets hold each other up, suspended by the magnetic field.  The magnetic field, in essence, creates a line drawing of itself.  The line was about 30' long.
