    That’s amazing ! Now, please dudes make the same thing with a kind of space suit to make people drifting :)

    I don’t see how everyone is calling this fake already. Did the artists say that? My roommate made a levitation device that worked on a much smaller scale, but in a similar manner.
    I’m pretty sure this is real too.

      well, it’s done by an animation firm if that tells you anything.

  • porkchop

    not a fake! all they would have to do is power the electromagnets inside the balls in staggered stages, so that they’d pulse on and off (and so go up to the magnet and fall back down) in rotation like christmas lights. The result would be a kind of cascading slow-mo pillar. booya, naysayers.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
