I made this work
with the “Layout from Instagram” app of Google Play of my smart phone, through
the digital processing, in a silkscreen way, of two photographic shots, that is
the front and back of a leaf. In this work it is possible to observe an ordered, perpetual, bidirectional movement, vertically, horizontally, oblique, without end, along axes that seem to reproduce many Cartesian planes.
I then opted for
digital printing on canvas. The work, which is part of a trend entitled
"Communicating bodies", is a mere attempt to answer a question: where
do things end up?
When a was a
child I wondered where the world ended, because the idea that it was limitless
disturbed me, so I imagined a wall that delimited the universe. But then I
wondered what was beyond that wall. Today, as an adult, I wonder where so many
other things end up, such as a feeling, a bond, a pain, a passion or a leaf
after falling from its tree. In mathematics,
there is a convention which is given the name of "plus or minus
infinity" (± ∞) which is used to solve and solve an otherwise unviable
problem. And this is what
we often do when faced with questions with no answer or solution: we adopt an
So where does a
leaf go? ± ∞ could be a
peaceful solution, a no-answer that satisfies the question, the acknowledgment
of an irrefutable fact: there are things that may have no end.
