Alla fine del mondo, Florida: first contact, 2002


The Alla fine del mondo (At the end of the world) project includes a photographic series and a video.

The photographs were used as frames of an animation sequence to create the video, in which a very few sounds from digital archives are repeated and processed in different ways. The artificial colours added to the shades of dusk emphasise the passage of time in a mental scene where natural elements, sounds and lights assume an absolute abstract quality.

In the photographic installation Florida, first contact, a palm tree leaf at sunset is repeated several times with varied focusing. The leaf is lit with different colours through the sequence of images, while the sky becomes darker approaching the night.

The Alla fine del mondo project was conducted at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Woodside, California, with the support of Movin'Up grant and Studio Jacobacci & Partners; then presented at the show Nuovo Spazio Italiano, curated by Fabio Cavallucci, Giovanna Nicoletti, Giorgio Verzotti, MART, Palazzo delle Albere, Trento, 2002-2003.

The images of the series Florida: First Contact were shot during the homonymous residential programme, curated by Alison Nordstrom, Atlantic Center for the Arts, New Smyrna, Florida. The project was selected for the Present Future Section, Artissima, Torino, 2002.
