The world of art is one that is fabricated from a person’s mind. It is where ideas take shape in material form, so the definition and form of art vary from person to person.

However, there is one artist in Italy who has a very peculiar way of seeing art. Italian artist Salvatore Garau insists that his art piece does not physically exist but it doesn’t mean that it’s nothing. If anything, he believes that the piece is a vacuum.

According to Newsweek, he said,

“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.”

The name of the ‘sculpture’ is Io Sono which means ‘I am’ in Italian. The initial bid for the piece was set at around 6,000 to 9,000 euros (RM30,000 to RM45,000) but it was sold for 15,000 (RM75,000) euros after several bids.

For illustration purposes only as the sculpture is invisible so there’s no real photo of it.

It is said that the ‘sculpture’ should be displayed in a private home and in an unobstructed space of 5 feet by 5 feet. The identity of the buyer was not revealed but they received a certificate of purchase from Salvatore Garau.

Would you fork out that amount of money for an ‘invisible’ sculpture? Let us know in the comments!
