Jeff Wall’s Invisible Man

Invisible man by Jeff Wall is great constructed image, this picture has been inspired by a novel by Ralph Ellison ‘Invisible Man’ published in 1952 about a man who falls in to a forgotten basement during a riot and makes it his home. ┬áHe fills the ceiling with 1369 light bulbs that he illegally wires up. ┬áThis scene has been painstakingly constructed with every item representing the character and his psychological state.
