About the piece: 

The main idea of this work is the atmospheric phenomenon known as mirage. It is an optical illusion caused by the refraction of light through a non‐uniform medium. There is a  secondary concept based in the etymological origin of the Latin word “mirare”, that means “to
look at” and “to wonder at”. These two motives culminated in the creation of material based in distorted images, it transformation and a passive contemplation of it.
