la Gloria (1 minute)
Video projection: size variable
One 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, “La Gloria” derives from the first canto of “Paradiso,"
La gloria di colui che tutto move
per l’universo penetra, e risplende
in una parte più e meno altrove.
(The glory of the One who moves all things
permeates the universe and glows
in one part more and in another less.)
The flicker and flashes are generated by the cadences of the poetry.
