Spanish street artist Pejac created four installations of gravity-defying art in London, Ontario.

Most people have seen shoes tied to or hanging from power lines in cities and there are many theories as to why this happens, with explanations blaming everything from bullies to drug dealers. This gravity-defying art exhibition takes this common practice and turns it upside down in these 'Downside Up' installations. The small installations feature shoes that, instead of hanging down towards the street, appear to "hang" upwards. The effect is quite unusual and makes it look as though the shoes are attempting to float to follow an unseen force.

This project turns a normally unnoticed occurrence into an interesting piece of art by simply flipping perspectives.
