I don't like the word "experimental". It gives a sense of precariousness and
indefiniteness. The works that are more often classified as being
experimental are finished works: the experiment and the research are in the
reconstruction of the case history of the work, from how it was made. This
is interesting and is experimentation, but not the work per se which is the
end of a path and is finished. Even painters test things, use different
techniques. I did some photographs for example by putting photographic paper
in my hand and impressing it from the hole that is created by making a fist.
This procedure is experimental, it doesn't even exist in photographic
history. Just think, it's a method that I, a dickhead from Rovigo ,
invented! It's fundamental to do tests, that's why I think that dexterity
must not be lost as it takes you to the discovery of things you never even
imagined, many times thanks to accidents, to errors, that you make your own.
One thing that frightens me in electronic technology is the obsolescence of
instruments. It's dangerous: it seems to me that the continuous new
instruments are a limit and not a stimulus, they do not give creativity time
to be just that, creative. The risk is that electronic engineers are more
creative than the artists themselves and another risk it that the artists
are sucked into the big multinationals of electronics. All this in my
opinion is very dangerous; it's more beautiful to surprise people with
nothing.
