'Moments in a Stream' is an upcoming art installation made up of atmospheric pressure sculptures. Although the pieces look as though they have been crushed by a giant, or perhaps a real-life hulk, in reality they were created "using a unique vacuum process that "implodes" geometric shapes causing the material to deform," according to Psfk.

Created by Ewerdt Hilgemann, a German artist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the atmospheric pressure sculptures will be launched on Park Avenue in New York at the beginning of August. Located between 52nd Street and 67th Street, the atmospheric pressure sculptures range from eight to twenty feet in height. Made out of stainless steel, the technique applied to them "represents the inward spiral energy to reach the core and mystery of matter, the ultimate beauty of creation," states the artist.
