Oil and air are two immiscible components, the force of attraction of the molecules are different as well as the masses and the densities. when the oil is pumped with the air, it breaks up into little blobs, wafting in the space giving a timeless sensation.

Taking in acount the state mentioned before, a glass panel is created that is able to give different atmospheres to the building through shading and translucency. Throughout this process, the air blobs are still running smoothly through the panel while the oil remains in a liquid state.

The glass panel will work in a gallery installation, and it works to give different atmospheres into the space; can be through shading, privacy, among others.

While in the opposite part, a single glass panel is placed in order to let light pass through, as well open the view of exhibitions that can take place in the gallery.
