Studio Drift – Free floating concrete monolith & HoloLens Artwork

On display at the recent Armory Show in New York was the work of Amsterdam based Studio Drift featuring 'Drifter', a free floating concrete monolith together with 'Concrete Storm', a HoloLens experience comprised of mixed reality art object.

Studio Drift (Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn) create site-specific installations and interactive sculptures that deal with space, light and movement, by playing with existing and new relationships between nature and technology. Describing the 'Drifter' work as something that is simple but technologically challenging, the duo have chosen to keep the wraps on about the technological aspects of the install, which in return makes it even more intriguing to speculate on how the piece actually works. The concrete block, what appears to be a helium powered blimp, made from printed vinyl fabric appears to be floating in mid air, within a semi-controlled environment.
