Catalogue Note

"Maybe a year ago I saw some random YouTube video of these transparent screens existing. I just searched the internet until I found one I could buy. I had no clue if these things were going to work. It sounded too good to be true. It’s a fantasy that’s been promised to us by science fiction. Then you get them and they’re very material. They’re not totally clear, it’s kind of brown, grids overlap, pixels create a moiré pattern. There’s a wonderful distance between what you expect of a transparent screen and the transparent screens we have. I love the way they look."
