La Notte Salva
Tiny animals of different kinds were filmed by night and then magnified under semi-transparent spherical glasses. The activity of constantly moving organisms subjected to magnification results in unexpected images of unrest, changeability, migration and creativity in altering shapes.
„La notte salva is a path of sensations that attempts to gather around its nature without revealing it, without opening itself to any human language.“ G. Boccassini
