The Science of Levitation —conceived by HOK, The Book of WA and ACOOCOORO— explore the possibility of the unknown and becomes the inaugural installation presented at VOLGA. At the core of a delicate equilibrium of forces, time suspends itself, defying the boundaries of the familiar, creating a moment where elements reclaim their primal essence, transforming and levitating. The Science of Levitation asserts itself as a representative of a world of the surreal where gravity dissolves, where energy transcends boundaries, merging the physical domain with the realm of dreams. The installation artfully plays with the viewer’s perspective.
Nestled at the heart of the VOLGA hotel—a gateway itself to the realm of the contemporary—the artwork’s volumes beckon as an invitation to liberate the conscious mind, momentarily releasing the tethers that anchor us to Earth, those very bonds that bind matter together. It stands as an open world, a portal through which we contemplate the boundless possibility of shedding our earthly vessels, embracing expansion, and forging a union with the vast universe.
