French artist Vincent Leroy has once again captivated audiences with his latest creation, Point Cloud. This mesmerizing artwork, crafted from composite materials and 3D printed components, has traveled from the icy glaciers of Iceland to the serene lakes of Canada before finding its new home on the picturesque Greek island of Santorini.

As visitors approach the installation, they are immediately struck by the intricate fractal structure that seems to come alive with every gentle movement. The intense blue discs, reflecting the vibrant hues of the sky and the Aegean Sea, create a mesmerizing dance against the backdrop of Santorini’s iconic landscape.

What sets Point Cloud apart is its responsiveness to the elements – designed to be lightweight and sensitive to even the slightest breeze, the blue point cloud gracefully rises and moves against the Santorini sky, creating a mesmerizing spectacle that is both captivating and serene.

To achieve this fluid and light movement, Leroy has incorporated aeronautical technology into his design, pushing the boundaries of innovation beyond the constraints of traditional materials like aluminum and steel. The result is a mobile that moves with an effortless grace, a silent dialogue unfolding between the artwork, the natural elements, and the surrounding landscape.
