Slow Dance Sculpture Frame

Slow Dance frame art will make you look twice—and probably more—with the captivating optical illusion it creates. Objects in the frame appear to be moving in slow motion, but it’s just a trick of the eye caused by synchronized high-speed strobe lights and vibrations. The frame comes with pheasant feathers and you can try putting other lightweight objects—like flowers and leaves—into motion. Enjoy it standing or wall mounted.

Wonder Machines

Artist Jeff Lieberman made his first piece of optical illusion art for a pair of dancers as a wedding gift. He named it Slow Dance, which is a perfect fit for the happy couple and for the effect the sculpture art creates.

Objects in the frame (feathers, or other lightweight things like leaves and flowers) appear to be moving in dreamy slow motion, but it’s a trick of the eye. Which Jeff knows all about from his work as a slow-speed photographer—along with his degrees in physics, math, engineering, and media arts and sciences. And though it’s science at work here, the effect it creates feels like magic. It’s art brought to life in a way that’s mesmerizing to watch and one we couldn’t look away from.
