May I Have This Dance?
Hands extend. Partners embrace. Feet glide gracefully across the floor. An enchanting exchange, the slow dance is mesmerizing and mysterious. Searching for a way to capture this beauty, while creating a symbolic gift, Jeff Lieberman designed this mechanical art piece.
Conceived as a wedding gift for dear friends, who are both dancers, Jeff's innovative design combines science, technology, and art to make everyday objects appear to move in slow motion. It's an optical illusion, created by synching lights to vibrations, but the scene is remarkably alluring: flowers, leaves, and other tiny treasures elegantly undulating within a shadow-box-style frame.
Whether the piece is hung on the wall or positioned on a table or shelf, the objects can move freely through three different dance modes. Follow Jeff's lead and give it to a couple to represent the lifelong dance they're about to embark upon together, or hang one in your own home as a reminder to take a moment to slow down every now and then. Handmade in China.
