Mozart on the virtual world

Mozart on the virtual world

I start to get interested art virtual and then more generally to the whole digital art in Second Life in 2008.
From November 2011 as well as exhibitions in galleries virtuales I devoted primarily to the design and construction of large installations .
The first of this was Variations On The magic flute an opera inspired by the masterpiece “The magic flute” in two acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. The work is in the form of a Singspiel, a popular form that included both singing and spoken dialogue.[a] The work premiered on 30 September 1791 at Schikaneder's theatre, the Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna, just two months before the composer's premature death.
The installation unfolds in a series of environments inspired to some of the arias and moments that are more given to the inspiration of the moment.
The fully immersive and interactive environment allows visitors to immerse themselves fully in the work.
A surprising opera that unfolds in a series of environments full of references,allusions and allegories, in an infinite game of layers that overlap and intersect.
The bright stairs can be one of the tracks to follow to retrace the journey of the opera’s protagonist and allowing the visitor to replace it, but, as in any journey of personal growth, the path isn’t easy and the risk of falling and of go back is always present
These are some of the videos made by visitors, the first and last edition.

With the first presentation of the installation built in the land  Imparafacile, thanks to Giovanni della Bona, they have also been made of the meetings devoted to the knowledge of Mozart's Magic Flute.

 Works are a detail reworked  of my installation in  3D 
The mirror, as multiplicity and continuous playback.
The mirror, where the invisible overlaps the original and the hidden appears suddenly.
The mirror, as an illusion of which you can not do without.
The mirror as a projection in an unreal dimension.
The mirror that opens the door to .... 


The work is a detail reworked  of my installation in  3D.

In Greek mythology, Maenads,  and Bacchantes,in Roman mitology, were the female followers of Dionysus and the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. in Roman mythology after the penchant of the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus, to wear a bassaris or fox-skin. Their name literally translates as "raving ones” .Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication. During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pine cone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honor of their god, and often handle or wear snakes.

Balance research

The tension towards a balance has inspired this work. simple circular and triangular loops overlapping, intersecting layers, creating a harmony of volume. The black and white in which whirling flashes of light make you want to silence and listening, after it was eliminated any disturbance

At the beginning was the kaos....

The Chaos, in the primitive sense of the Greek term, is the immensity not measurable and unlimited of the primitive space ( and so the blend and the disorder and the fortuity) in which the kosmos originates, that is the beautiful, good and rational order of the world, which always comes from a messy background. The Chaos is not definitely passed by the construction of an intelligible world and of the shapes, but it still continues to be as the foundation on which also the Kosmos stand.
It could be understood as a creative act of the artist who derives a sense and a aesthetic and meaningful order from the formless matter. This vision of the Greek cosmogony goes straight up to our ages, in which the view of an universe regulated by the relativity alongside the quantum mechanic gives us an universe regulated by the fortuity of the events.
