British artist Alex Chinneck recently unveiled an awesome new art installation in the piazza of London’s Covent Garden. Entitled Take my Lightning but Don’t Steal my Thunder, the piece presents the fantastic optical illusion that a 40-foot-long building has broken free of its base and floated up 10 feet in the air where it hovers in flagrant disobedience of the law of gravity.

The magical building is modeled on the original architecture of Covent Garden’s 184-year-old Market Building. The structure is mostly made of CNC-cut polystyrene.

"A 14 tonne (15.68 US tons) steel framework and a 4 tonne (4.48 US tons) counterweight were used to support the structure, and Chinneck employed a team of specialists including architectural consultants, structural engineers, steel fabricators, carpenters, and set builders, to help build it. The installation was transported to Covent Garden in pieces by truck and assembled within four days."

The mind-bending installation was transported to Covent Garden in pieces and assembled on site over a 4 day period. It’ll be on display through Friday October 24, 2014.
