Google’s Decalogue / Spazio Gamma / Milan / 2019

The project starts from the 10 commandments, the laws written on the two tablets that, according to the Bible, were given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai. These phrases are typed in English on ‘Google Search’. The resulting material is downloaded from the Internet, digitally manipulated, printed on transparent films and subsequently mounted on aluminum to form an immersive installation. Google’s Decalogue investigates the relationship between the original univoque elements, the tables of the God’s laws, and the Multiple, the results of the researches. Starting from a single sentence one inevitably moves away towards a multitude of different directions. The Google search tool offers us a sequence of heterogeneous, various, inconsistent, sometimes inappropriate results that add so much information to the initial sentence that it becomes incomprehensible, fluctuating, ethereal, meaningless.

COVER – UP 

The project critically engage the curatorial proposal of Macro (Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome) to create temporary artist’s studios within the museum.

The work, intended as a performative action, is will be not carried out inside the atelier but instead in the area dedicated to the audience. The space of the Atelier # 4 remains empty while the glass surface around it emerges by getting progressively filled. The glass theca, thought as it were a materialization of a digital screen in the physical space, becomes a magmatic surface where images, downloaded from the Internet and digitally manipulated, get accumulated.

The action will be recorded and distributed through some live streamings on Facebook, videos and photographs shared by both the author and audience. The work returns to the digital space in the form of fragmentary, ubiquitous, manipulated, accelerated images, a multitude of traces of a hybrid action.
