Artist, Aleksandra Stratimirovic, a Yugoslav, resident of Sweden has produced an installation entitled “Sunny day”. It is produced by filling 4464 small medical glass vials with different coloured liquids. When displayed with a fluorescent backlight, the coloured vails become bright and by taking a couple of steps backwards an image of a girl appears. The framework is 2 by 3 metres and the image depicts a girl stood by a lake with a rolling hill as a backdrop.

It’s another example of how the inherent properties of glass can be used to create art and by adding a simple coloured translucent liquid, something completely different can be created. Click on the image above to go to the artist’s website and see for yourself how the illusion works.

The work has been exhibited in Vzigalica gallery, at the Svetlobna Gverila festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2008.
