NILS GUADAGNIN: Hoverboard

13Jul10

[VIMEO=”http://vimeo.com/11968215″%5D

The Hoverboard is a project born in 2008 for an exhibition named “Back To the Future”. This work is a copy of the hoverboard from the movie Back to the Future II. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. In the making of this work, I was thinking about different ways of presenting sculpture. In fact it’s a reflexion on the multiple possibilities of how to give a sculpture full spatial autonomy.
