The artwork, tirled Io Sono (meaning “I am") went up for auction last month at an Italian auction house called Art-Rite. According to the artist, despite lacking any physical form, the sculpture very much existed in its nothingness.

Speaking to reporters, Garau said, “The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that nothing has a weight". Spanish news platform Diario AS further quoted the artist as saying, “…It has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us."
