"Balancium" is part of the fxhash interactive minting experience at Art Basel, Basel 2022

In the fall of 1931, in Alexander Calder's studio, Marcel Duchamp coined the term 'mobile' for his kinetic sculptures. Later, Calder wrote: "This, in French, means not only 'movable'— but also a 'motive', 'a reason for an act' so I found it a very good word."

Around the same year, Bruno Munari started making colorful and whimsical mobiles. He called them "useless machines", existing without any purpose and inviting viewers to just look. Elements are connected with nearly invisible threads or wires, allowing the artist to create the illusion of shapes floating in the air.

Balancium is both a virtual mobile and a useless object. Generated by the code, it undergoes a continual transformation. The movement of the air, or invisible fluid, becomes an integral part of the design and amplifies serenity.

There is a keyboard key that unlocks more variations.
