CARTA DEL CIELO (EMPOLI)

April 2015. Workshop (Istituto Calasanzio, Empoli). In collaboration with: Leonardo Chiappini.

A new map of the night sky created in the Science Lab of the Istituto Calasanzio. Starting from paper, common object and curios objects found in the lab we imagined an alternative cosmo, an alternative time, regulated by a huge machine-constellation, a clock mechanism and a ball game between a football player and a tiger.

MAP OF THE NIGHT SKY (SAINT ANDREWS)

April 2015. Workshop (University of Saint Andrews, Saint Andrews, Scotland). In collaboration with Andrea Rossi

A group of students from the University of Saint Andrews recreate an unexpected Big Bang by hiding 50 photosensitive papers under the sand on a beach in front of the Scottish ocean. A map of the sky become the timeline of a sort of cosmogony composed drawing on the send. During the following days we give an order to this work, defining affinities, shapes, direction and names.
