SIGHTING POINTS

By Chiara Pellegrini

Wandering through the city streets you often feel like you are constantly observed. As if a big eye, permanently over our heads, was looking down at us.

People talk about safety, social control, but it looks like we are more like old women hiding beyond their closed windows, afraid of external looks.

This “mobile” installation is looking for a role-reversal from “observed” to “observing”, through the definition of “sighting points”.

30 magnifying glasses are placed side by side forming a molecular modular structure and defining an observation area through which, depending on the distance of the observer, the reversed or magnified image juxtapose with reality.

Technical features:

The art and the senses
Every means has its limits:
the music is blind,
the painting is silent
the paralytic sculpture
