A audiovisual film commissison from Onedotzero to Quayola for the MTV Bloom competition.
The work is an investigation into the icons of Rome’s renaissance architecture and the dissolution’s of their compactness. Through a combination of photographs and computer-generated graphics, “Rome” aims to create a series of images where the subject is de-contextualized from its historical and cultural implication. A process of metamorphosis transforms the architectural matter. Its solid three-dimensional spatiality mutates into an ephemeral two dimensional skin made of geometrical shapes and colors, obtaining a new incompact reality. The images represent these transmutations in a specific moment in time, like if an external spectator photographed them. Assuming different meanings, the represented buildings appear under a new perspective that focuses on their images rather than their historical and architectural significance.
