Created by digital artist Takeshi Murata, this rippling, reflective sculpture was unveiled at Ratio 3 gallery as part of the Frieze art fair. Titled Melter 3-D, the sculptural animation is technically a zoetrope, and only achieves the illusion of motion with the help of a strobe lights or perfectly synchronized still images captured with a camera. That is to say, it’s a physical object but it wouldn’t look exactly as you see here if you were standing in front of it, not unlike Matt Kenyon’s Supermajor.
