World Premiere

The video “looks” at the semantic/experiential micro-universe made of memories,
by showing some frames of an old super 8 film put on the lens of a miniDV camera. Moreover, it “looks” at the cinema as a sort of material to model. The “schizophrenic eye” – the dialectic question between the mechanical and the real eye - is another aspect of the video, that wants to explore the reality and, in particular, the collapse between its mechanical reproduction and nature.
