Moto per luogo

photograph on aluminium, abraded, cm 90x60 

A staggering aspect of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle is that the very act of observation modifies the objects observed.
As an object, the landscape also undergoe this modification. In the photographic series Moto per luogo
( Move through the place)
, there is the result of an action performed on a landscape image.
After photographing a place and printing the photo on aluminium foil, I returned to the same place to alter the photo, rubbing it against the landscape itself, walking down the snowy slope with the photo itself on which I sat. Determining a destabilizing visual and conceptual short circuit.
