| SILVIA DE GENNARO (It), Travel Notebooks: Perugia, 2014
Using details from a photo reportage, I created a digital collage that reassembles the city as it is formed in my imagination. The details are notes on a traveler as pad, fragments surviving in the memory. The work’s animation tries to give back not only lived impressions and influences, but also the points of view of the traveler’s eye, who now focuses on a particular, now on another one. Zooming in and zooming out. Where prospective is not given by scientific rules, but by emotion felt while observing and discovering.
Perugia is a weave of streets, it raises and falls, in the absence of time.
It 's a magical three-dimensional chessboard where shafts of light alternating with shadow cones,
showing whether the soft pink of stone or the dark damp of time.
Perugia is the fertile womb of a woman, the cellar where the more precious wine is hidden.
