Descrizione Opera / Biografia
Web_2012#001 is the result of a photographic project entitled Web_2010 which is aimed to show the sense of precariousness and fragility through the web, a natural subject tended to relate to and forced to interact with the space, with all its slowness and gentleness . Looking at the extreme fragility and lightness of these plots perfect enchant you by the power of harmony and subtlety of textures that analyzed in detail lead to a spontaneous sense of wonder, so catching the essence of nature.
This sense of intangibility leads us to reflect on the precariousness of the web and by extension to the fragility and the ultimate meaning of reality.
The video was completed with the addition of a sound part, essential to create a sensory processing tended to emphasize more our precariousness and the relationship of moving textures with space.
