Invisible Einstein

The world’s first invisible mosaic. Handcrafted from over a thousand randomly created plastic squares, the mosaic appears completely clear when viewed by ordinary light. But when viewed through ordinary polarized light, the image jumps into view with a wild variety of color.

Each 1/2 inch tile of plastic contains a wild variety of color. When the mosaic is mounted on translucent plexiglass, it can only be viewed by transmitted light.

While the technique’s veiled messages make it a powerful, eye-grabbing medium for billboards, booth displays and interiors, it is also ideal for educational purposes at museums and in scientific displays.The unpredictable colors in the tiles are a product of refracted polarized light. Extreme care had to be taken in measuring these colors before placing them into the mosaic.
