Called the "String Prototype", this inflatable structure boasts a network of cables that can be explored similar to a jungle gym. When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of the installation. When the object inflates, the ropes tense to a perfect line again, strained enough to carry the weight of a human being. Bodies entrapped in 3D grid, flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space, resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feeling of immenseness and absence of space. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

The artist started drawing with the image of a fallen oak tree in his mind, but imagination quickly took over, as he painstakingly drew heaps of rotting wood, fallen branches, knots and fissures, wild grass and plants, bushy leaves, and even a massive whale.

French artist Philippe Ramette believes nothing should ever be faked, just cleverly placed. His gravity-defying poses might look like Photoshopped optical illusions, until you notice they are peppered with little incongruities. "You see a tension in my hands, my red face is far from serene as the blood rushes to it, my suit is ruffled," says Ramette. In France, his strange images have been compared to the work of Buster Keaton and the world of silent cinema. For him, they are a statement about gravity, weightlessness and man's relationship to the landscape. Continue reading for more.
