Lightsourcing A4.1 (SK, T2, C1) is an environmental video installation composed of three independent videos projected in asynchronous loop. Activated at different times, the videos create renewed contacts between the individual times/spaces, in a variable environmental installation. Variable for coincidences and specific for the interaction of the projection with the architecture.

Projected on multiple walls, the installation includes five clusters representing the coding and three-dimensional rendering of five words search by images through Google browser. Words that become emblems of inflation and that, over time, have become stereotypes. The five words are: Algorithm, Bio, Green, Internet, Smart.
 The iconography is relative to twenty indexed images, keeping as representative the ends of the search, which has a beginning and an end: the first ten indexed words, followed by an interval, together with the last ten, have been standardized in units, measuring 1 pixel x 1 pixel, each becoming a monochrome. Starting from this image reduction, the parameters 
of color, brightness and saturation define the values and variables to be inserted in a three-dimensional prototyping system. A spiral drawing, whose shape is defined in a virtual environment by a Cartesian reference system. The diagrams move following a cyclic revolution along their own axis. The point of view and the framing are orthogonal and lateral. In one shot, there is a progressive movement away from the circular spirals, while the background is characterised by the alternation of basic colours every minute. Through three-dimensional rendering, the words are remodeled and take shape in the space of the video installation.

HD video, 1’ 14’’, loop, environmental size
This video was created as a pure architectural presence of 1 minute and 14 seconds. It is a counter-projection and reflects the entire chain of devices with which it is made, including both the optics of the phone and the mobile projector. The video is a dialogue between these two devices: the phone in mirror mode with the projector films what it projects, in the same point/moment where is captured. For the projection, the device is rotated and directed towards the farthest corner of the adjacent outer space, covering different surfaces.

HD video, 16’ 12’’, loop, environmental size
This work collects video footage taken in two distinct moments inside the flats of FuturDome and was edited in chronological order to be seen in a continuum. Some gestures and glances at the architecture are filmed, including light and electronic devices. Acts that reflects on the attention to architecture and how the gaze moves on it. The initial gesture as a contact with the surface reveals and verifies its presence by connecting to a second part that invokes the environment in its entirety, with the projectors already active; a stratified presence of multiple, instinctive, attentive looks. The relationship with the space is acted and directed at the same time, adhering to and replacing the architectural shell.
