A true sign of creativity is the ability to re-imagine the laws of physics. In his installation, Liquid Marble, Mathieu LeHanneur bends the very nature of a marble surface and creates an atmosphere of fantasy and intrigue. Pushing the limits of algorithm-based 3D modeling, the French artist built a slab of black marble that appears to be a pool of energetic waves. The illusion is compelling and strange. Walking across this bizarre surface is a perfect photo opportunity if you’ve always wanted to walk on water.
