Levitation – Flattening Red and Blue

Levitation – Flattening Red and Blue & Blurred Violet

Life is an order of energy. In the artwork space, an order of energy is created, just like life.

The sphere is not supported by anything. Nevertheless, through the order of energy, the sphere transcends the concept of mass: it levitates in the space between the floor and ceiling, floating up and down.

When a person taps the sphere, it floats away, falls to the ground, and rolls away.

But if there is no external interference, it will slowly rise into the air again, as though restoring itself to its original state. The sphere also appears to shift between two and three dimensions.

The existence of life can be thought of as a Supernature Phenomenon that defies the laws of physics.

When an order of energy is created within the artwork space, the sphere transcends universal gravitation, violating physics as life does.

The sphere slowly levitates, becomes suspended in the middle of the space, and floats up and down in the air.

When a person views the Supernature Phenomenon before them, it causes their perception to change, thus leading to a new cognitive experience that differs from that of everyday life.

This artwork aims to explore changes in cognition.

Transforming the human body into sculptures by metallic body paint

The Artistry of Human Transformation.

In the world of art and photography, there exists a captivating realm where the human body is transformed into living sculptures, where skin becomes a canvas and metallic paint the medium of choice.

The works of photographers and artists like Mario Sorrenti, Guido Argentini, Paul Roustan, and others have transported us into a mesmerizing world where the boundaries between nudity and artistry are blurred.

Picture this: a dancer, her body glistening like liquid metal, every sinuous curve reflecting the play of light, evoking awe and wonder in the observer.

This is the magic conjured by Guido Argentini, a photographer who transcends the ordinary by adorning his subjects with silver paint.

The result? Bodies that appear as if sculpted from the very essence of liquid metal. The human form, draped in this metallic cloak, undergoes a stunning metamorphosis, shedding its conventional identity and donning new aesthetic qualities.

Argentini’s work tantalizes the senses and beckons us to contemplate the essence of humanity when clothed in such ethereal artistry.

The interplay of shadows and highlights on their metallic sheen creates a dance of contrasts, inviting viewers to explore the interplay between human vulnerability and artistic resilience.

The art of transforming the human body into metallic sculptures is more than a visual spectacle; it is a profound exploration of the human condition.

It prompts us to question the boundaries we place on ourselves and others, to ponder the transformative power of art, and to marvel at the human form’s inherent capacity for metamorphosis.
