Tom Mùller


about the artwork

Levity by Tom Mùller is a sculptural installation and expresses what the artist calls a state of “seamlessness and perfect balance”. A levitating disk resting upon itself, gently hovering and defying gravity, the work is designed to remind the viewer about a ‘lightness of being’. Mùller describes this meditative work as: “A slow pulse, a light beat, aligning with our breathing cycle, the work inspires the audience to slow down and take a moment.”
