THE CONTINUITY OF BECOMING
All contemporary art, in fact, is nothing other than a reflection of the idea or philosophy of a transversal, complex and at times even incomprehensible (if superficially interrogated) cultural era. This is why it seems ever more willing to provide innovative spatial dimensions, new temporal dynamics. It attempts to represent the interior world of man. It simulates the feelings, sensations, emotions that he would be experiencing if he were faced with his own thoughts and wanted to completely traverse these thoughts.
A work of art is thus the end result of a specific process – possessing a specific form and aesthetic, it serves no purpose except that of channelling a very specific form of energy. It is always a sort of communicative performance. It allows man to plumb his own conscience and to void it. In fact, it is only within empty spaces that energy is able to unleash its own creative force. Consequently, by asking how to develop this energy in the face of the complexity of the world, questioning the need for free mental space, man is experiencing a journey where reality and the virtual go hand in hand: two dimensions which are no longer disjoined, in that the virtual is nothing other than an “as-if” reality.
