New Balance (Free-Standing “restored construction site wood” object, leather and special lacquer, 101cm x 53cm x 9cm, Dirk Marwig 2014)
* It can stand on any hard and level surface. It is not attached(free standing)to the surface and that's what makes it cool, somehow defying gravity! Just like the ‘Junkie’ on the street corner wearing those New Balance runners. He/she will sway back and forth but never(miraculously)topple over(New Balance!). Sad but sort of funny. This one is based on actual observation.
