PHOTOS from March Foundation


A set of photos from my solo show at FONDAZIONE MARCH http://www.fondazionemarch.org/

For my solo show at Fondazione March I made an installation not 100%
related to the work shown in the iPod
( http://www.fromthesunsetterrace.com ) but speaking in general terms
about the attitude of all my practice that takes advantage of
uncertainty and is filled by a high level of unpredictability.

The title is "When the class is boring I go to the bathroom"
while the Post-It on the door says "People in the classroom, not having faced many true situations of decision making under uncertainty, do not realize what is important and what is not..." (Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan)

I see this as a kind of personal cinema, a personal platform to display part of my projects.

Enjoy,
