Observatorium (Blu.Tally), 2011
Pallets, dimensions variable, plexiglas, sound system
This work represents the possibility of the expansion of the sculptures “U.s.a.i.s.o.” in a habitable and modular version realized with standard elements, stacked. The work was produced for the occasion of the inauguration of the Museo Riso of Palermo. Its daytime vision, emanating light frequencies of blue, countered with nighttime blue, and aka Massimo performing a site-specific composition for the occasion – a symphony on the blue: “Blu.Tally” precisely. The title of the work (including the sound composition) focuses on a double meaning: the blue evokes a spirituality and at the same time confronts the brutality of the urban context and social environment in which the Sicilian museum is located.
