studies on action and re-direction is a combination of items produced in Milan during a stay at VIR Viafarini-In-Residence.
Elements of research have been → images observed as section-made and presented as objects much more than »flatware« for screens or walls; → images of working processes or manual actions; → collaborative attitudes based on the negotiation by the use of acquired formats and languages.
The installation includes elements of evidence of a research period dedicated to the so called Chinatown in Milan (via Paolo Sarpi). There have been multiple spots of interest, at least 2 different focuses: → the expectation of some collaborative action; → the formal interest for video-images―framed and recorded following some kind of »ethnographic norms«―as complex objects which can be observed and presented in a strongly structured, »architectural« way.
