Vanishing Sliced Steel Sculpture


Using science and art, Julian Voss-Andreae creates incredible sculptures that can vanish right in front of our very eyes. Made up of a series of layered steel sheets, the sculpture forms a human image at a certain angle but then disappears at others. He calls this particular 8-foot high work of art Quantum Man.

“When approached from the front or back, the sculpture seems to consist of solid steel, but when seen from
the side it visually disappears almost completely,” he says. “This fascinating effect offers a range of possible interpretations. In the context of quantum physics–inspired art it is natural to see Quantum Man as a metaphor for the wave-particle duality, the phenomenon that all matter exhibits wave-like or particle-like properties depending on the experimental question we ask.”



“Reality is not something out there, independent of us, and ultimately can’t be separated from its observer.”
