Sine firmitate nec utilitate
This installationÂ is called “sine firmitate nec utilitate” with an explicit reference to the Vitruvian categories of architecture. It consists of three very weak and unstable elements: a chair, a step ladder and a ladder, all made with wood and aluminum tubes. They are tied together with a string and set apart in order to have some tension. The string is connected to a mechanism (a modified record player) that cyclically causes an alteration in the balance of the three objects, making the shadowsÂ they castÂ wabble for a moment.
In March 2015Â the project for this installationÂ won a call for entryesÂ by Kunstrasse to be shown during the opening of Davide Trabucco’s exhibit at Miro Gallery in Bologna.Â All pictures but the first one were taken in that occasion by photographer Sergio Palozzo.
