As hinted by its title, conversely to the series that makes use of microscope slides, Cristales de inevidencia CO employs cover slides. De la Mora groups the cover slides, which are thinner and less blue-toned that the microscope slides, in such a fashion that each crystal abandons the groups in order to gain a certain individuality: each of them is perpendicularly inserted into the surface to create an interplay of light and shadow. Whenever it is not illuminated, the drawing that is projected onto the surface disappears; thanks to the light it acquires a three-dimensionality where drawing and architecture coexist. An infinite number of compositions are created, and they will vary according to the light source and its position.
