Levitating Beam at Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

There are Times I Lose Faith (Levitating Beam): a collaboration with Osman Khan

Fun Exhibits designed the magnetic system to levitate the huge metal beam which hovers without consuming electricity. A brief pulse from an opposing electromagnet makes the beam come crashing down when triggered. The dangerously-strong 15cm diameter x 15cm thick neodymium magnets hidden inside the beam and pyramid are the biggest I’ve ever worked with!
