Co.Design: business + innovation + design: Supermajor--the art piece, not the group of corporations--takes you by surprise. The installation is set up in a darkened room, with a single bulb casting a flickering light over six vintage oil cans.

But thanks to a complex optical illusion, the oil seems to be moving back into the can.
