Invisible Made Visible

 

"Invisible Made Visible" is a series of photographs picturing broken glass surfaces.

 

Due to its transparency, glass is invisible. It only becomes visible either when it reflects something – and then it is not visible for itself, but rather makes visible – or when a trace is left on it.

 

In the first case it works as a mirror (or as a cinematic screen), in the latter as a protective screen, preventing us from reaching what is kept behind it. 

 

When cracked, a glass surface emerges as an aesthetic object, i.e. as a sensible object. Not only it fragments the reflected image (as well as the see-through image) making seen a number of possible images,  but it also makes the invisible protective screen re-surface as a visible – and hence sensible – object.
