Made up of thousands of mirror elements, the installation of Loris Cecchini develops in the aerial part of the central corridor, in a sort of hybrid form that is reminiscent of coral structures. The development of branched plants, such aggregates and structures in nature are always different and yet governed by a strict geometry.
The basic element of the module that consists in infinite geometries, comes from the observation of the natural elements of the earth and the sea, then translated into abstract element and reassembled in several different shapes, in their concatenation they generate open structures that refer as a biological metaphor bodies found in nature, and which remind us that mathematics is one of the basic rules of nature, even in the fractal dimension.
Activating the suggestions and the imagination of the observer, the work moves in the upper part of the passage as a jewel generated by the forces of the sea and the air, drawing in space a score of dynamic formations.
