Artwork of the Day: Cornelia Konrads, Pile of Wishes (2004)

German-based Cornelia Konrads creates gravity-defying works using natural materials surrounding her like rocks and branches. Whether she’s suspending a pile of stones in front of a cave in Korea or creating a passageway of floating branches in Germany, Konrads can conjure up magic all around her. Amongst a series of work she calls Piles, Konrads created Pile of Wishes, a conical accumulation of stones that lift up, break free from the group and fly high in the air.
