Balancing Circle

Heein Im – Balancing Circle

Balancing Circle is a sculptural object that experiments with the tension and flexibility of textiles. As people walk past, the installation generates unexpected excitement by swaying lightly and interacting with the surrounding space. The object also focuses on material research with elements that are commonly used for fashion accessories such as leather, yarn and fabric.

The circle is a shape that is considered to be perfectly balanced. However, by placing it in a critical position, our attention is drawn to the second moment of balance applied to the circle. It is as if we were attempting to establish stability in every situation, forgetting that we are already perfectly balanced beings.
