URBAN FIELDS aesthetic experiments for urban appropriation

Simple, minimal, almost intimate gestures. Over anonymous moments of everyday life. Space changes. Intention reveals what has been hidden: the shape of the sun, the thickness of the air, the relations among things, the tale of the soul. Paradoxical, surreal, spontaneous. Fast transformations like mirroring a sunlight over a building facade or swinging up and down suspended on a tree. Nomadic landscapes made of wind blows captured into transparent capsules. Simple, minimal, almost intimate gestures. Liberating gestures soon disappearing‌ and all those moments will be lost in time like tears in the rain...

FIELD: Corso Francia Viaduct, Roma, Winter 2008/09



Torus like shape as an house like myself workshop. Exploring a nomadic minimum space of existence (or a space of minimum existence?) we demostrate a resourceless 1:1 prototype is much much better than a computer based rendering: it tooks 25 people for 16 hours cutting and tapering about 1000 sqm of plastic sheets.



PLA STI C SHE ET








Self made inflatable based experiments for a light, instant and floating urban scenario. Performing with the wind and some thin sheets of plastic, metropolitan poetry emerges...

Too often the air is a forgotten dimension to be used as a creative opportunity...
