The work is at close range a collection of more then four thousand small medical glass containers filled with different coloured liquids, in a sterile laboratory framework with a fluorescent backlight. When taking a couple of steps back the vivid image of a girl appears, standing at a lakeside, with summer blue sky above. The work has been shown in Vzigalica gallery between 28th May 13th June, at the Svetlobna Gverila festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

    Wonderful! i love the use of something so sterile (the medical tubes) to create the finished product.

    Nice..seems like we see these pixelized images quite often now.. Is it art? or are we trying to figure out new ways to compose an image with small specs of different colours, whatever it may be. Hmm. This one’s ok. Can’t wait to see a curved or complex shape one.. or something within architecture. :) Nice

    Exceptional work.

    I’m curious to how the dye in the bottles will break down and change over time.
