The vitrine (2014)

The vitrine. 2014

Glass and wood. 20 cm x 20 cm x 45 cm.

 


The small  vitrine contains a fine glass bottle (probably for both  oil and vinegar)  and the  novel "Baudolino" by Umberto Eco; a light creates an image-shadow of the bottle on a translucent paper surface. The shadow is in some points  transparent in a way that permits this projection to creates a new object, a kind of ghost,  an item that has lost its corporeity to became a shadow   drawing.
