Thin glass bars cleverly crafted to move like wings make up Studio Drift’s latest body of poetic work for the 2015 Venice Art Biennale.

This kinetic sculpture is created from the Amsterdam-based duo: Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Naura. Their delicate and ethereal designs, along with their fascination with movement and light, has quickly becoming their signature—see their Rijksmuseum installation "Shylight" or dandelion-inspired spectacular from "Fragile Futures." The common thread being that epic dialogue between opposites —a high tech dance, if you will—between nature and technology, fantasy and reality.

Titled In 20 Steps, the Amsterdam-based artist-designers have channeled the ‘human desire to be able to fly, despite the force of gravity, and the poetry of persistence in the face of adversity,’ into one beautiful form.
