Project to create invisible sculptures. Emmanuel Macron
Ah, emptiness, nothingness, nothingness — notions that stimulate the imagination so much and yet we know well that emptiness, in the strict sense, is a fiction. Even the “vacuum” is in reality a boiling of quantum energies, a terrain of uncertainties and potentialities. It is this paradoxical richness of “nothing” that pushed me to design a work that is unusual to say the least: an invisible sculpture dedicated to Emmanuel Macron during his inauguration.
This creation is the first invisible sculpture to be installed in a public space. It is not just an absence of matter, but rather an invisible presence, just like the quantum field which fills what we too easily qualify as a “vacuum”. In a world where everything is increasingly exposed, measured and quantified, this work encourages us to reflect on what is undetectable, unfathomable, or even non-existent in the eyes of the general public.
