Rome 02:25, Color, Stereo, GB, 2007
The piece Rome is an investigation into the icons of Rome’s renaissance architecture and the dissolution of their compactness. Through a combination of photographs and computer-generated graphics, Rome aims to create a video where the subject is decontextualized from its historical and cultural implications. A process of metamorphosis transforms the architectural matter. Its solid three-dimensional spatiality mutates into an ephemeral two-dimensional skin made of geometrical shapes and colours, obtaining a new incompact reality. The video shows the entire process of transmutation. Assuming different meanings, the represented buildings appear under a new perspective that focuses on their images rather than their historical and architectural significance.
