Invisible Images

So this week's challenge and absorbing idea is how to create an artwork that's barely there. Is art still great if you can't quite see it? Can art be invisible?

I'm finding the work of Robert Ryman endlessly intriguing: it's the white on white that captures me, with the image endlessly shifting and changing depending on the light and viewing direction.
