the vitrine (2014)

the vitrine.

 

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.
