The Path Is A Resonance

Le immagini del progetto nascono come esplorazione del territorio, punto di partenza per interrogarsi sulle esperienze di osservazione e sui meccanismi innescati dalla percezione della realtà osservata.

Andando per sottrazione, si cerca di decodificare un paesaggio allontanandosi dal contesto oggettivo e ricomponendo i luoghi in una nuova scenografia. Il luogo offre un’intuizione e il mezzo fotografico diventa una sorta di strumento di veri ca, il campo si restringe spesso su un singolo elemento che funge da riflettore e restituisce all’osservatore una percezione singolare, privata.

La sequenza delle immagini ha lo scopo di rimandare a qualcos’altro, far percepire un collegamento tra esse, non una documentazione dei luoghi quindi, ma il desiderio di scorgere qualcosa che rimane tra il visibile e invisibile, la volontà di portare ad immaginare le connessioni che intrecciano i luoghi, la natura profonda ai manufatti, alle infrastrutture, alle architetture, spesso dal carattere ambiguo.

Il concetto di prossimità viene trasceso e si cerca di non rendere definibile o quanti cabile la lontananza o la vicinanza dei luoghi e degli oggetti, il famigliare e l’estraneo si fondono in questo incessante movimento che porta a definire un paesaggio costituito da molteplici connessioni e punti di riferimento.

Le coordinate geografiche scompaiono e rimane solo un riverbero che aiuta a identificare il proprio percorso.

The images of this project originate from the exploration of the territory – a starting point for our questions about observations and mechanisms triggered by the perception of the reality we reflect on.

We try to decodify a landscape by distancing ourselves from the actual background and by recomposing the elements of another scenography. The place induces an intuition and photography becomes some sort of checking tool, the eld often focuses on a single element that works as a spotlight and gives back to the observer a unique and private visual perception.

The sequence of images has the purpose to refer to something else, to lead to a perception of a link between them. It is not a mere documentation of places but the desire to catch a glimpse of something that stays between the visible and the invisible, the desire to make you imagine the connections that interlace places, the basic nature and the often-ambiguous artefacts, infrastructures, and architectures.

The concept of proximity is transcended, and we try not to de ne or quantify the distance or the vicinity of places and objects. The familiar and the unfamiliar blend together in this continuous movement that leads to de ne a landscape made of multiple connections and points of reference. The geographical coordinates disappear and there is only the echo that helps to identify one’s own path.
