Evento 720

It seems that the new technologies, the digital one in particular, did not eliminate the symbolic, but have simply expanded its field.

With the digital, communication itself reached a gaseous state of great numbers and minimal distinction, thus provoking an excess of information in all fields that transcends our rational limit.

At a certain point, all that is excessive can as well lead to the sublime, which in spite of the horror of the unknown promises wonders.

This work represents an attempt to maintain a tension between the known and the ineffable that stands at the basis of the sublime.
