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.
