My artistic work is all about movement and its opposite inclination to stasis. It is about a body made of flesh that has to move in order to be. Personally, I have always felt the ground under my feet trembling and the liquids in my body flowing, my flesh transforming and my shape adapting. I have always been fascinated in how we can be both presence and absence, heavy mass and gentle imagination; how we can wander in space through gestures and in time through transformation. By moving we trace the world with lines and fill the space with energy. We are landscapes of geometrical structures. We draw boundaries and organize the space. The video camera is for me the exasperation of our nature: an object able to set an imaginative border around another object, to invent a space that is container of vision and vision contained at the same time and where a body moves in and out, seen and not seen. In the past, video has been a mise-en-scene of my feelings and the body has been my eternal obsession and narcissistic dilemma. However, the enemy unexpectedly became a cooperator. In fact, it is not anymore through video that I experience the body, but it is through the body that I now experience video as a medium. I am especially interested in the possibilities, limits and characteristics of video. I want to explore the images in motion through the manipulation of time, movement and sound and create compositions of rhythmic sensation and artificial reconstruction. By manipulating video we can change the rhythm and the meaning of a piece; the image repeated, reframed, accelerated or slowed down can contribute to produce an harmonic composition that it is like a piece of music. I want to be the compositor able to determine the time, characteristics and power of the piece. Usually, the continuous stream of images does not stop and passes through the visual field of the spectactor; I ask for contemplation, trying to force the image between stasis and motion and oblige the viewer to observe the otherwise glancing picture.
