Leviation is strongly related to the magic and the enchantment. Media Instruments in Edison’s age are developped to defy the gravity by the rotated visual images. Here is the artwork called “Levitrope”, this word stands for “lev(levitation)” and “trope(rotation)”. This media installation displays levitated metalic balls and they rotates on the wheel like structures. It reminds us our body and enbodiment of ourselves under the gravity. We envision these zero gravity kinetic sculpture will new media installation of Digital Nature Age.
