The drawing is transversal in Ivo Andrade’s work, it acts on several fronts, with diverse outlines and in a certain invisibility.

"By the size of the Universe", 2012, Nano-drawing [made with an Auriga SEM] on paper.

“By the size of the Universe” intends to raise questions about our abstract capability to reflect and interact on spaces that are completely strange to the nature of our body.
A drawing was made on a sheet of paper but remains invisible to our eye since its size is smaller than the smallest size that the human eye can reach.
At that scale, out of the range of our natural body senses, is carved the word “UNIVERSE” fitting the shape of the cosmic radiation background image.
Without a Scan Electron Microscope (SEM) the only way to see the drawing is through a print of a screenshot taken via SEM [which shows us the drawing and its details concerning the size and other technical aspects familiar to science] that goes along with the sheet of paper that contains the drawing.
Representing something as vast and remote as the radiation background at that very small scale is a poetic attempt to create an endless line with an infinite continuum of scales.
