suspended-in-air

@tekaguya, from here.

Oh. It decided to approach.

Bell suspended in the air, he made no attempt to hide himself from the Ultra Beast. In his radiant glory he stood there, gazing upon the otherworldly being. Experience with the previous Ultra Beasts, told him that this one probably couldn’t communicate via human speech, too.

This, instead, he remained silent. Maybe wait until it said something, first…?

Artist Ellie Davies Spent 7 Years Turning UK Forests Into Magical Art Pieces

U.K. artist Ellie Davies spent seven years in the forest composing a series of different subjects, where she utilized nature’s organic tools to create surreal art installations. Eerie and beautiful in appearance, fragments of glitter and fabric seem to be suspended in the air. Their surreal appearance defy the laws of gravity; magic exists.

Enchanting in appearance Davies’ work is a meditation on humanity’s perspective on nature. Often seem as spell-binding, the artist emphasizes the forest’s symbol for fantasy and folklore. She admits:

“The forest represents the confluence of nature, culture, and human activity. Forests are potent symbols in folklore, fairy tale and myth, places of enchantment and magic as well as of danger and mystery.  In more recent history they have come to be associated with psychological states relating to the unconscious. Against this backdrop my work explores the ways in which identity is formed by the landscapes we live and grow up in.”

Visarute Angkatavanich (Thailand)

Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich captures some of the most elegant portraits of fish. His intimate, crystal-clear photos of Siamese fighting fish (betta) make it seem as though they are suspended in air instead of water. Angkatavanich recently told Popular Photography that he only started photographing the fish after encountering them for the first time three years ago at a fish show and has since become obsessed with the different species which vary greatly in size, shape, and color patterns. Limited edition prints of his work are now available through La Lanta Fine Art. (src. Colossal) © All images courtesy of the artist

Gravity-Defying Organic Art Installations by Cornelia Konrads

German artist Cornelia Konrads creates gravity-defying land art in public spaces. Mind-bending and stunning, each installation gives the appearance of weightlessness. Stacked on top of each other with logs, fences and doorways, they give the illusion of being suspended in air and frozen in time. They reflect the ephemeral sense of nature in relations to time.

“If only I could go for a Walk” | Zalewski Architecture Group  | Via

There are ideas that arise from the need of a particular moment. Such a need – another hot day of summer spent in the office and a thought “if only I could go for a walk” – became inspiration for a project of a path suspended in the air, a balcony Walk-on. It is also one of the ideas to change a sad courtyard, that we overlook every day out of the office windows on the 3rd floor, to give the courtyard a bit of magic.

A normal path is tortuous, winds, does not lead directly to the goal, surprises, relaxes, gives contact with nature. Therefore our path should also flow freely in space – giving you a moment of relaxation, rest, allowing you to change the perspective. This influenced its shape – it winds freely and intertwines with itself – it allows for a relaxing walk “from office to office.” Longing for a bit of greenery made us treat the path as a large pot. We filled it with grass that can grow as it wants – after all it’s just a path.

Catching Air with Kiteboarder @hopelevin

For a dose of saltwater action and sunshine, follow @hopelevin on Instagram.

“Kiteboarding gives you the chance to focus on that moment and truly live in the present,” says Hope LeVin (@hopelevin), a kiteboarder from the Turks and Caicos Islands, who picked up the sport at the young age of 11. A year ago, the now 22-year-old turned her passion into a career when she began riding the waves professionally.

Although Hope enjoys traveling for work, she loves returning to her home island and following certain routines, and begins the day by feeding her two senior cats, Moody and Coaly. She adds, “I’ll try to fit in an hour of fitness with my trainer Nancy, respond to emails and do social media. I may be writing a blog or article for a kiteboarding magazine, so I’ll do that and then in the afternoon I’ll go kiteboarding for several hours.”

Hope has now mastered the art of taking selfies while suspended in mid-air above (or below) her board. “Getting good shots with my GoPro isn’t always easy. The angle is often wrong or I get an amazing shot but then there’s a huge water drop in the middle!” explains Hope. “It’s weird, but usually it’s the days where the conditions aren’t that great that I get my best images. I guess I’m focusing too much on having fun on the good days!”
