Invisible painting sells for over $15K

There’s a saying that goes “art is in the eye of the beholder” and well, that’s probably why an invisible sculpture sold for over $15,000. 

Italian artist Salvatore Garau‘s sculpture, titled “I am,” is in simple terms a sculpture that does not exist in the sense of how one would normally think, or at all, but, according to the artist, while you may not be able to see his creation, it’s nothing but a vacuum. 

Per Euro Weekly News, Garau explained it as, “The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that nothing has a weight. Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.”

Despite the sculpture’s invisible nature, it can’t just be displayed anywhere. It must be in a space that’s free from obstructions and measures about 5 feet by 5 feet. Lighting and climate control are optional.
