Alex Chinneck is the master of illusion. This 40-foot art installation in London's Covent Garden Market has many people confused. The building appears to be floating, but how is that possible?

The illusion of weightlessness is made possible by a lot of polystyrene and 16 tonnes of steel. A 12-metre armature hidden inside the structure is connected to the ground through an innocuous market cart, in which a 6-tonne counterweight stops it all from toppling over.


Thank you google :04:

Nick1090,
That green thing on the right? Looks like the only thing touching the upper building.
