Metabeasties (2003) Artist: Elizabeth Miklavcic

Metaballs are, in computer graphics, organic-looking n-dimensional objects. A very distinct visual characteristic of metas is that they are fluid mercurial, or clay-like forms that have a "rounded" shape. Furthermore, when two meta objects get close to one another, they begin to interact with one another. They 'blend" or "merge", as water droplets do, especially in zero-g (which, by the way, makes them very handy for modeling streams of water when you don't want to do a fluid simulation). If they subsequently move away from one another, they restore their original shape. Wikipedia & Blender-Meta Objects
