“Then, to think of intervening in transformative dynamics of a place presupposes the ability to understand the visible and unseen dimension of the actions that are overlapping there, of the signs that may have been integrated, deleted, partially or completely, or simply overlapped; the ability to capture, in very different contexts, the value of the measure of sings as a synthesis of the quality and incisiveness of the actions that have deposited or are going to be deposited. […]Therefore it doesn’t seem possible to think that at everyday’s transformational operations that are added, there are subtracted, or re-asembled, signs of the landscape, without reconsidering the criterion of complexity, understood also as a system and demonstration of a territorial and environmental organization that always exceed local dimension”.
Laura Zampieri, Per un progetto nel paesaggio, Quodlibet Studio
“Landscape, for me, indicates that at the doors of our gaze. […] That thing we conservate in our memory after have stopped looking, that we conservate in our memory after have stopped exercising our senses within a space invested by the body.”
Gilles Clément, Giardino, paesaggio e genio naturale, Quodlibet
Let’s start this time from sedimented suggestions and not from the idea of having to return something of the place to the place itself, due to that who lives in the place may knows it better than us. Creating an action that arouses curiosity. Something extraordinary and/or unusual.
Here doesn’t finished anything.
What lights up at night brings stories with itself, memories erased, voids, places to be replaced on a vast surface.
