Alza le vele

2017

Nine channel video

Eight minute video loop

 

The piece is part of series that takes it's inspiration from a (rather distanced though maybe not entirely ironic) reading of the Divine Comedy, the title of this video, “Alza le vele” derives from the first canto of “Purgatorio,"

 

The flicker and flashes are generated by the cadences of the poetry.
