FLOATING LENSES BY VINCENT LEROY LANDS IN LAKE LOUISE, CANADA
For Vincent Leroy, the great outdoors are immense playgrounds in which he likes to test out his most recent creations. Following his explorative installation in the desert of Joshua Tree (see more on designboom here), the French artist now imagines his Floating Lenses optical mobile in an XL version on the turquoise waters of Lake Louise, in the Canadian Rockies. Made up of 128 fresnel lenses mounted on carbon rods, the mobile reacts and takes flight at the slightest breeze. Defying the laws of weightlessness, it swirls above the lake and begins a silent and harmonious dialogue with nature and the elements that surround it: air, light, and the mirroring surface of the water in which it reflects itself.
