Three Machines on Transparency – Pursuing philosophical concepts as functional prototypes

Created by Jasna Dimitrovska as a part of her Digital Media – HfK Bremen, Master Theses, Three Machines on Transparency is a project that is imagined as an “exhibition by appointment” where the artist guides the audience throughout the gallery installation. The three machines represent artefacts that by own demonstration allow the artist to synthesise philosophical concepts of different forms+ideas of transparency into the corporeality.

The first machine, "The Gaze", includes a led light attached to a 3 core cable. The glass object is filled up with glycerine. Commonly a light beam does not go trough a glass bottle but it disperses. In optics the refractive index is a number that describes how light, or any other radiation, travels through that medium. The refractive index determines how much light is bent, or refracted, when entering a material.
