Levitating Art Sculptures

The Festo SmartInversion is Floating Artwork Fit for the Future

— April 16, 2013 — Art & Design
A common staple that you'll notice at many large galas and conferences are large, eye-catching art installations that have been rented out and erected for patrons' viewing pleasures, but even after taking just one look at the Festo SmartInversion floating scultpure it's obvious that contemporary art is soaring into a new dimension.

The Festo SmartInversion is a structure that is named after the smooth folding movements that this lightweight sculpture makes mid-air. Pumped full of helium, the Festo SmartInversion literally folds in on itself with "rhymically pulsating movement," otherwise known as inversion. One of the great things about using a floating sculpture like this is that this hovering piece of artwork takes up no floor room and instead only uses the open and unoccupied airspace.

By using a mezmorizing scultpure like the SmartInversion, you can throw an amazing event on the ground while a rhythmic party rages on above.
Trend Themes
1. Levitating Event Installations - Using levitating sculptures or installations as part of large events, conferences and festivals.
2. Helium-based Floating Art - Innovative floating sculptures that use helium for buoyancy and movement.
3. Airspace Artistry - Creating art pieces that utilize open and unoccupied airspace instead of floor room or other traditional spaces.
Industry Implications
1. Event Planning - Opportunities for event planners to offer innovative and engaging levitating event installations to their clients.
2. Art and Sculpture - New possibilities for artists and sculptors to create helium-based floating art pieces and explore the concept of airspace artistry.
3. Marketing and Branding - Using levitating sculptures or installations as part of experiential marketing campaigns to create an immersive and memorable brand experience for consumers.
