21 Physics-Defying Sculptures That Will Wrinkle Your Brain


Art, as we all know, is super subjective. Not everyone has an eye for it, not everyone gets it, but when we do get a glimpse of what we think the point of this or that art piece could be, it’s like we saw the face of God … and then he told us we’re smart as heck!


Yest, the real masterpieces make you think and ask questions, and of course, rethink what is and isn’t possible. When art installations screw with our eyes, by breaking the laws of gravity and generally seeming to be physically impossible, we can’t help but ask ourselves “How did they do it?!”
