Cinquecento Soli

Installation, 33m x 20m

bois, sanpietrini, 220 miroirs, 2018

Exposition Take Me (I’m Yours),

Commaissaire: Christian Boltanski, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Chiara Parisi,

31 mai et 21 juin 2018, Villa Médicis,R

220 reflecting surfaces are collectively organized and individually adjusted to project 220 sunsets into the north-east oriented Loggia of the Villa Medici. The 31st of May, 220 mirrors shifted the Cosmos toward the Villa, as people witnessed the first ever sunset this space had known for 430 years.

The installation was conceived alongside a study on our cultural relationship to energy, as an allusion to the infrastructural landscape emerging in the Mediterranean’s backcountry. It stood as a phenomenological experiment of the contemporary energetic city which territory extends far from its formal limits. As we were focusing on the production of architecture in this landscape, and on the perspectives we could bring to it, we followed two intuitional paths for 500 soli’s conception:

Analogue design   -    Collective energies.

I, digging !

The first of intuitions;

no narration nor metaphor preceded

dig first,

big enough,

and see first.

 

This strain is two century-old. On October 2017,

without mechanical means,

we removed five tons of soil from the garden of the Villa Medici,

and revealed 200 years of natural history.

JAUNE JOY - exhibition at Villa Medici

The places of production are distant and left to the discretion of the technicians who only legislate on their rules of the game. Here we examine the architectural capacity of the new technological condition of our energy and perhaps thus give it a happy and light breath.

Buckmister Fuller patented aluminum and polycarbonate structures, and dreamed of covered glass cities. «Your Private Sky» - frantic vision of progress (unrealized).

The countryside invents a net to protect itself from hail. Harvesting lean, it weaves it thiner for (less than 5% shading), then it colors it, (positively photoselectively). The campaign invents, tests, corrects, tests and improves, experiments, scale 1, space - unbridled progress (in progress). Everything changes, fast, noise, and no time for anyone to contemplate, to look for a vision or a reference. For Louis Kahn the Man remained changed when foresigning that light was white and not yellow and that shadows were black and not blue.  These nets are a design drawn to the photon, specular and colored. Positively photoselective at 5% shade.

«Doing the best with the least»   /   Yellow. Jaune, Joy.

Mediterraneo is a territorial corpus and a performative methodology of work, holding our production into one distinctive scope of study. It questions the bounds between energy, climate’s identities and Mediterranean habitability.

 

Mediterraneo is a process of exploration. It starts with an extensive use of cartographic tools, historical data, narrations, intuitive “correspondences”. It develops into drifts, interviews and photographic or video reports.

 

Mediterraneo is a project-maker. From a growing corpus of situations hold in a comprehensive whole it stands as material for distinct projects.

Correspondance seeks to produce evidences to open up prospective research on themes of relationship between productivity and livability.

Nicolao, Octobre 2018, Marseille

“Beyond Boredom or Suffocation» is a on-going series of models and drawing: formal investigations giving an aesthetic perspective to substances of energy and nature: a pendant to “Mediterraneo”.

The objective is to elaborate formal language and strategic, yet lyric action, to question the aim of architecture within our current systemic crisis, and its address : Should we think architecture as a human, elemental, or natural attribute ?
