The mirage is an optical phenomenon that produces an illusion extending to the horizon, a fantasy, a fata morgana. This installation is the setting up of a scientific device for the creation of a mirage with the reconstitution of the conditions of appearance of a mirage in dry air. On the TV monitor a video explains how the installation works.

The installation doesn’t work
