Daniel Firman’s Wursa is a taxidermy elephant balancing on it’s trunk. Firman states that at 18,000km above the earth Wursa could balance on her trunk. This is based on a learned scientific equation that Firman uses to throw our everyday perception out of whack. It defies earth’s gravitational logic, that an elephant could take such as precarious pose. Wursa’s equilibrium puts our physical selves and our own perception of the world around us in danger. If Wursa fell over the viewer would be crushed. Contemplating the equation behind Wursa’s balancing acts, takes ones mind out of the everyday, right,left,up down, and makes us think about life from a different perspective, one that is 18,000km above the earth.
