    fuckin magnets, how do they work?

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

  • Tommy

    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

    wouldnt want that thing around all the computers

  • 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.

Hand-Embroidered Photographs by Artist Diane Meyer

American artist Diane Meyer questions the ability of photography to accurately preserve our memory and experience, highlighting its tendency to obscure the past by transforming history into an object of nostalgia. Embroidering directly onto photographs taken along the former path of the Berlin wall, see more images from “Berlin” below.

You can also click here to see our previous post on Meyer’s series of hand-embroidered family photos, “Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten,” a selection of which is on display at the George Eastman Museum in New York until Janurary 29th.
