Nucleo / installation view MAMbo -Bologna
Nucleo (2000)

fiberglass, microphone, sound system, felt insolation.
250 cm diam.

At almost three meters wide, this empty fiberglass sphere contains some curious
features. On its side is a circular hole that allows us to insert our heads and,
amid a dark and obscure interior, experience the sound of our voice echoed
artificially through a special sound system.
Like a “portable abyss”, this sphere is a fantastic capsule that refers to the
”beyond” hidden behind Fontana’s slashes/Concetti Spaziali, Galileo Galilei’s
great perfect systems (Massimi Sistemi) and Jules Verne’s “Journey to the
Centre of the Earth”.
