The Invisible 2010-2018

The latest discovery in the field of invisibility is a tiny 3D layer able to conceal small volumes or objects due to the dispersion of the light rays, an invention that Science magazine reported in 2010. The layer is composed of polymers and its surface contains lenses that projected light waves partially inclined to disperse them and hide the object to the human eye.

Maria Grazia Muscatello

There is no possibility of understanding the invisible outside the visible. If today, the power of the image seems to be exhausted only when seeing, in its immediate επιφάνεια (manifestation) - to the point that all that can be seen assumed the ontological status of reality - Plato was clear that the visible is a small part of the thing itself and that the essence of the image is not resolved at the simple observable phenomenon at a specific time.
