Invisible Message. 2011

Fiberglass, infrared LEDs, custom electronics, electricity.

This visually refined formalist wall-mounted sculpture carries a hidden message. One can see it though only if inhanced by digital technology. The piece carries different meanings in different light spectra - visible and invisible ones. Accordingly, one should look at the piece in two ways - with bare eyes and through a digital camera or a mobile phone - that is sensitive to infrared light.
Kind of direct illustration to M. McLuhan idea about media as extension of our senses.
