Exhibition text by by Damien Blass

Cloak is a two part project that attempts to capture the image of an invisibility cloak moving through time. Through rendering software a material was designed to envision the look of a meta-material invisibility cloak. How will it look if it cannot be seen? As this technology moves forward who will have access to it? What will it be used for?
