A piece of ulexite (a mineral commonly known as “TV Rock,” that acts like a fiber optic cable, bringing the image behind it onto its surface) inserted over a painting of a glacier melting into the ocean. When viewed from the front, the painting is visible through the ulexite; from the side, the rock becomes opaque.
