Transparent Murano glass blown in a complex shape-changing mould. Made at Berengo Studio. A wooden mould, as the traditional ones used in glass blowing. Inside it there are magnets, which allow he artist to arbitrarily arrange cubes, also made of wood. In this way, by moving the cubes between one blow and the next, each sculpture comes out different an unique. This process is similar to #5 and #11: the difference is the membrane used: the balloon is replaced by the glass itself.
If a sculpture full or empty inside, does not make any perceptive difference: we perceive it as full. This is almost always true. Almost because it only works if the material it is made of is opaque.
A transparent sculpture confuses our perception. Transparent bodies do not make us feel their exact weight. Transparency is the only case in which we see the fullness entirely. This is paradoxical: we could actually say that our gaze crosses the fullness, dwelling on the surface behind it.
We only have a partial view of a transparent body, but in any case of the whole surface at the same time.
