Wim T. Schippers - The floating stone - 1999

Wim T. SchippersThe floating stone1999Modern artIn his work ‘Het is me wat’ [Well I never], Wim T. Schippers appears to defy the forces of gravity: a stone hovers above a plinth. Schippers worked with the Technical University in Delft to achieve this. The stone can defy gravity thanks to three electromagnets that exert force on magnets incorporated in the floating stone. The words ‘Het’, ‘Is’, ‘Me’ and ‘Wat’ are written on the four sides of the plinth. Schippers designed this work for the Ministry of Heath, Welfare and Sport, where it was unveiled on 16 December 1999. Since 2005, the art work has been housed in Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum.
