Palazzo Re Enzo, Bologna
In life, a designer for advertising and fashion, with an exceptional ability to keep up with the changing balance between kitsch and formal elegance, with a passion that’s never hidden for liberty and art deco. But for roBOt, he’s the author of "Madreperla", a fascinating video installation, semi-static evolution that changes over time in a continuous dialectic between the mystical and Eros: the original image is broken down into digital form by vectoriale approximations that at the same time simplify and abstract the process of understanding. The design becomes a dynamic system of mathematical functions, the sexual object is transformed into analytical curves of second and third degree that evolve in a temporal dimension. The language is once again, like the other videopath from the series "Trasformazioni.spore" (2010), generated by the narrow and sharp tension between beauty and kitsch.
