Strata#1 02:00, Color, Stereo, GB, 2008
Strata #1 is an audio-visual installation that explores the icons of Rome’s renaissance architecture and focuses on the layering of times, functions and representations. Through sound and visual effects, Strata #1 concentrates on the collective imagery of particular buildings, reflecting upon the stratified historical meanings they detain in the western society through time. A rotating ceiling is inhabited by a computer-generated particle system. The latter moves and behaves in relation to the sound, coexisting harmoniously with the surrounding architecture. The video environment created within the installation becomes a hybrid between a real architectural space and an abstract two-dimensional pattern: a new space in-between the real and the artificial.
