Continuum, documentation of urban performance, video, 6', loop (2008)_excerpt / photo c-print, variable dimensiondevisventurelli.comdevisventurelli.com

Continuum è una performance urbana, una danza o forse la rappresentazione di una Promenade architecturale in looping, in cui l'artista-soggetto-passeggero è totalmente immerso, è l'incipit di un singolare panismo urbano. Le superfici incontrollabili non contengono il loro impulso a divenire forma creativa, l'uomo è protagonista-vittima di un virtuosismo che sprigiona energie e riflessi abbaglianti dall'emergere di forze inespresse. Il materiale isolante dell'involucro cangiante è l'oro sfavillante dello status-symbol antropologico che si manifesta nel suo ritualismo liberatorio. Intorno è la città, set inconsapevole, costretta a fare solo da sfondo, impotente nell'interazione con il movimento. Le architetture mobili di Continuum, quasi sculture evocative del dinamismo futurista, illustrano trasformazioni temporanee ed effimere, ma così preziose nella loro spontanea organicità vitale.

Continuum is an urban performance, a dance - or maybe a representation of a Promenade architecturale in looping, wherein the artist-subject-passenger is fully immersed - is the beginning of an unusual urban panism. These uncontrollable surfaces do not contain the drive towards becoming a creative form. Humans are both the protagonists and the victims of a virtuoso performance that unleashes energies and dazzling reflections, while unexpressed forces emerge. The insulating material of the iridescent wrapping is the shining gold of an anthropologicalstatus symbol, which manifests itself in its liberating rituals. All around the city, an unintentional film set, forced to serve as a mere background, powerless in its interaction with the movement. The mobile architectures of Continuum, almost like sculptures reminiscent of a Futurist dynamism, represent transformations that are temporary, ephemeral, and yet so precious in their spontaneous, organic vitality.
