BEING BUT MEN, WE WALKED INTO THE TREES
Two different works, based on workshops with schools and collaborations with artists, scientists and the public of the museum. The goal of this two works is to invent a possible shape to describe the “big things” of the universe, such as the Stars, and the “smallest things” of the matter, such as the particles.
The two works were created for the show “Bounty nello spazio” (Bounty in the Space), where the prow of the old vessel worked as a junctions between the two “universes”.

This project converted two large walls of a room into a huge floor-to-ceiling writeable blackboard.
Through a workshop involving two primary schools, a physicist and some artists, the participants attempt to portray the complexity of the world as it is described by quantum mechanics.
Workshop led by Matteo Rubbi and Carlo Spiga
with: Classes IIe, IIIe, IVe and Ve, Scuola primaria Locatelli and Scuola primaria Scuri, Bergamo.
and the participation of: Derek Maria Francesco Di Fabio, Gemma Noris, Marco Colombaioni, Giuseppe Bozzi, Diego Perrone, Michele Gabriele, Giovanni Giaretta, Anna Fantelli.

2011. Installation. Cloths, twine.
Catalog of stars and constellations made of cloth, using the color, the texture and the size of each star in relation to the Sun.
For example, if the Sun were a piece of cloth a mere centimeter large, the star Betelgeuse would be a big 10-meter sheet, brilliant and red; an unknown star in the constellation Canis Major would reach 18 meters: and Sirius would be no more than a small two centimeter blue star.
The project involved artists, fashion designers and tailors in rethinking the cosmos, altering its traditional representation.
