Just an Illusion # 25

Wool Brush Strokes (Analogia #001) – by Serra & Mancuso

“Analogia #001 is an alteration of space perception, an ethereal experience provoking the spectator to re-investigate the functionality of the objects surroundings them. It is on show at “testbed1″ as part of the exhibition “a few friends”, curated by Will Alsop, for the London design week 2011. Analogia #001 was made with variably sized Merino wool on a net of fishing lines fixed from ceiling to floor and from wall to wall. Firstly, the space was analyzed with a 3D software in order to position the fishing lines that created the framework for the sketching-wool. Having the basic structure we explored the intriguing freedom of drawing in the air. The name derives from the Italian word for analogy and the concept grew during the process of its construction. In fact while we were applying the wool, studying every “brushstroke”, we realized that the process was a meticulous replication of sketching. The installation inspires a feeling of ‘surprise’ in the viewer, which comes from seeing the materialization of the thought itself.” Emilia Serra and Andrea Mancuso
