From Floating Anime Ships to Suspended Origami Art

 - Jul 31, 2016
Science has done a lot to assert humanity's power over natural phenomena, from medical miracles to massive feats of civil engineering, but no amount of science can trump gravity; that's a task best left to these floating art installations. Whereas science is rooted in practicality and the proven, art has no limits, meaning that, with enough creativity, gravity is a mere trifle.

Floating art installations can be purely whimsical, as is the case with the floating origami installation or gravity-defying street art in this series. However, the suspended motif can also have more serious themes. For example, 'Head in the Clouds' is an interactive cloud installation that is a critique on people's overuse of mobile devices and technology, arguing that their disconnect from reality is like having one's head in the clouds.
