The work is a real time 3D visual performance and video installation. It is based on a research on 3D scans and photogrammetry of archeological objects, animal nerves, old ornaments presented in collections and museums around the world.
These advanced scanning techniques are enabling to record informations and to digitalize the shape of real objects. Each scan captures the uniqueness of an object, existed in the past. The scan carries within his data all the signs of a past life and its marks. The proportions are maintained, as well as the details, the flaws.
Once these skeletons are abstracted from their previous physical form, digital textures are applied. At this point the objects are finally brought to embody a new identity in a virtual space. A hybrid life arises.
The Scythian land, is a genetically anomalous soil. As early as XI century it was believed that was home of the Zoophytes. Flora is carved in architectural exoskeletons where caves of great extent, uninhabited, perceive their own presence in pulsating walls. Neither flora nor fauna alike, the Borametz grows its bones out of stems coming from the ground. A plant in essence, the Borametz flows real blood when carved with a blade. An umbilical chord connects his body to the soil. His skin is soft and his blood red.
Nuova Astrazione is the audiovisual project of Paulina Greta and Andrea Reni. It was presented both as a video installation and as a performance.
Nuova Astrazione performed with Alessandro Adriani and Domenico Romeo in a serie of live acts - Movimento - with 3D visuals interacting with body movements and music.
