· Jun 3, 2021 ·

The sculpture is titled "Io Sono" or "I Am" in English, but it really isn't anything. Unlike the great I Am, it neither currently exists, nor has it existed in eternity past or future. The invisible sculpture "I Am" exists "in the mind of its creator," artist Salvatore Garau, only.
