Caos Phaos, 2011, 2′ 20”
Chaos / Phaos is a physical and metaphysical journey, through dazzling flashes in the dark landscape of another dimension. A struggle between opposing forces, fighting but still mingling one with the other: light vs. dark, order vs. disorder. Both its visual component and the sound are constantly poised between circularity and linearity, stasis and movement. Even from a technical point of view, this work is the result of the encounter (or a crash?) between conceptually distant techniques: optical experimentation in shooting the swirling motion of air bubbles in a glass sphere in rotation and, on the other side, digital re-processing of the image in motion.
