“Albero” was realized for the Freeshout Festival in Prato, Italy. I reconstructed a 6 m. dead tree inside a big space that generated a fake shadow of itself alive, with leaves.
For this, I have studied the behavior of light and shadow, calculating the focal lengths based on the departing point of light. In this work space and light evoke a contradiction in terms of time: past and future, life and death. For the occasion I also made a final performance in which I cut the tree with a power saw.
