Il Bosco

@ EXPO 2000, Hannover, 2000

A real lawn and five synthetic trees. The video environment reproduces a space that is half way between real and artificial, in which advanced technological devices merge with the return to ancient practices: whisper your secret into the tree hollow! This was the advice proffered by the wise elders to the young inhabitants of the valleys, to free them of their ancestral fears and help them come to terms with the places they were to live in. The audience wanders around the “wood”, interacts with it through whispers and shouts. The branches of the trees grow defying the laws of nature, blossom at incredible speed reviving a fantastic world suspended between fairy tale and reality.

Sensible ambient.
