ECLISSI SOLARE

WHAT
‘Eclissi Solare’ is an autonomous light installation simulating a solar ecliptic effect. It is based on the concept of Nature’s Mimesis, in which technology is used to imitate the natural world and its phenomena.

WHY
In an era of advancing technological nature, ‘Eclissi Solare’ plays with our sense of reality. A solar eclipse is a rare event and can produce profound psychological effects. This piece has the power to recreate the intense experience.

WOW
The installation comes to life harnessing controlled and natural light sources reminiscent of a supernatural event that makes you wonder: what are you actually witnessing?

QUOTE
To believe that technology is not part of the natural world, is plain ignorance.
