Knives , video, 1’28”, 2007
Nature Obscure , video, 1’45, 2007 “Nature\_Obscure" and “Knives” are part of a series which includes video, digital images, photography, about the topics peace and nature, realized in 2007. The digital works by Davinio do not focalize on the aesthetics of the electronic image, but on its “matter”, making visible its texture done of pixels, in a perspective that embraces some practices of the historical avant-gardes, such as Futurism and Lettrism, Dadaism, Concrete poetry. In Knives , short video about peace, on the contemplative view of a meadow echoes of present and maybe future wars reach us in the form of voices from radio stations. In Nature\_Obscure , starting from photos realized by the artist in Brazil , Nice and Italy , Nature is evoked as enigma giving us an ultimatum, a revelation of its unknown deepness, made visible with some unexpected text and graphic elements.
