Mirari (Latin word, infinitive of miror: to be surprised, to see with astonishment) is a device based on a scientific method called strioscopy. This method makes it possible to highlight the compression of the air or other fluids in real time. The strioscopy makes visible optical phenomena induced by deviations of light beams and by superpositions of layers of air of different temperatures. One can sometimes notice these disturbances in the air above radiators, hot tar, or even in the case of mirage in the desert. 

The projection of a white light on a flame makes visible the emanations of heat.

It is in some way the projection of an object into the impalpable and into the immateriality which it can reveal. Show the object in a fugitive and slippery form and then realize that there is no objective reality thanks to this contextualization of the daily.

If the real is the actual or the concrete, then the reality is the feeling of reality. I want to talk about reality from reality

By creating presence in a place of absence, Capucine gives proof of an imperceptible reality, one between two in understanding and reading reality. Her field of action is in this space between the tangible and the intangible.
