THE OPENING DAY

 

Two channels installation shown for the first time in 2009 in the wide spaces of the Complesso del San Michele a Ripa, in Rome.
A baseball pitcher, 20 meters away, throws balls to some ceramic sculptures till they’re totally shattered. The installation envisages that the observer covers the space between the two projections remaining in the same pitch trajectory. The shootings were made directly on site maintaining the same distance provided by the game rules between the pitcher and the target object and then repeated in the video projections inside the space.

The opening day, double channel installation, 12'40" loop, color, sound, variable size, 2009
