In Murs de larmes (Wall of Tears) – an installation composed of about 400 crystal drops of different sizes pricked into a wall – natural or artificial outside light becomes part of a landscape of transparency, the artist playing precisely on the reflections and sparkles of this element. The wall is illuminated, shines, and yet the light does not come from it, all these drops seize the ambient brightness to exalt it.
