“A mobile is a type of kinetic art, first discovered by Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder. It was a new art concept and expression which mixes space and time (motion).

These “FRAMES” were very much affected by such concept of mobiles, but more graphic.

The transparent thread make the mobile float on air. You can enjoy the art that light and shadow creates through these frames.”
