Totem (2012)

This “Atlas” has been created to document the presence of peculiar elements inside the tuscanian landscapes; these elements (here called “Totems”) are able to inspire a peculiar sense of wonder into the observer, and in the same time can describe concisely the story and spirit of the land were they are found. The use of a poor-quality film helps to emphasize the symbolical quality of these elements.

The atlas with the location of this totems can be browsed on Google maps.

This work is part of a collective project with other members of the Blitz! collective (Filippo Bardazzi, Laura Chiaroni, Davide Nuti and Valentina Ceccatelli).
