The volume presents a reflection on the many expressive potentials and on the connection between light and sound.
“The immateriality of light and sound – says the curator Sara Liuzzi – takes on a determining value through the metaphor of the line, not only in the utopia of abstraction, but also in the real concreteness of its being: line as an expression of research, of narration, of three-dimensional processing. Sound follows its trajectory and, together with light, defines its limits, redesigns its profiles that take shape in space. From the essential element of the line emerges a solid interaction, a close communion with music: a score in which each artist, tracing heterogeneous paths, contributes to the synaesthetic creation, where a single unit takes shape, where light and sound contaminate each other in a synchronic. The installations on display appropriate the space, in a fluid and engaging way, giving the user a global sensory perception. ” With the disruptive power of light in the works of Carlo Bernardini, Giulio De Mitri, Javier Martin and Paolo Scirpa, lighting manifests itself in its broadest meaning; it is the revelation of what is not always visible to the eye, it is linked to the architectural characteristics of the space and constitutes the basic element on which to develop a musical score that develops in parallel. The works immortalize an idea of light, of which we can observe the flow, between sculpture, neon and photography, in an environment that is articulated around the visitor, altering their perception.
