It is fascinating to think of the sheer contradistinction in the scale of the crafted sculpture(0.04mm in length) and the infrastructural, institutional foundation that enables to precisely fabricate and image of an invisible sculpture. But even with the most advanced imaging technology, one can only observe the texts on the top layer yet cannot comprehend the texts underneath. The invisible sculpture is not the texts that are invisible to the naked eye(observable), but the supporting foundation for the observable, which is much greater than the observable.
