Sculture di emergenza is a project that invites you to discover the hidden dimensions of the domestic environment, transforming the shadows of the objects into table sculptures. The shape and dimensions of these sculptures will vary in relation to the object on which attention will fall. Mine fell on the coloured packaging of a food supplement.
1_Place the object on a sheet of cardboard.
2_Draw the contours of the brought shadow on the sheet.
3_The brought shadow can be divided into two parallelograms, to which it is necessary to add another two slightly higher and mirrored upside down (figure 01).
4_Add a rectangle equivalent to the side surface of the box and cut out the entire outline (figure 02).
5_Fold the cardboard along the lines. The drawing of the lines must remain inside the fold. To improve the fold, you can slightly cut along the lines on the opposite side of the sheet.
6_Glue by spreading a light veil of vinyl glue along the matching edges (figure 03).
7_We have thus obtained the “shadow volume” of the object (figures 04, 05).
For the concept of “shadow volume” see the explanatory video.
The project was born from an exchange of ideas with Narciso Silvestrini on shadow geometry. Riccardo Sinigaglia has acoustically elaborated the “shadow volume”.
He has published artist’s interventions, short essays, narrations and articles in magazines and newspapers (Arca, Boîte, Doppiozero, Ipso Facto, Nuova Prosa, Riga, Il Verri, Il Riformista), eBooks and volumes (Apeiron, Bacacay, Contemporanei, Doppiozero, Graphos, Mondadori). He exhibited his works and presented his theories on the look at museums (Great North Museum: Hancock, Gamec, Gasc, Hdlu, Man, Mart, Mlac, Revoltella), festival (European Photography, International Theatre Festival, Mystfest, Light Festival Lago Maggiore), foundations, research centers and galleries among the such as Baco, Continua, E/static, Franco Soffiantino, Milano, Mudima, Neon. Curator of exhibitions and projects on the exchange between codes and languages in cultures and subcultures of the contemporary. Co-founder of Warburghiana has contributed to the realization of his experimental formats.Sculture di emergenza is a project that invites you to discover the hidden dimensions of the domestic environment, transforming the shadows of the objects into table sculptures.
