Emilio Ferro | Resized Volcano | Photography 2019
March 24 to April 1, 2019
National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci, Milan, Italy
RESIZED VOLCANO is an artistic installation, supported by the European Cultural Center and created in the Olona Pavilion of the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, inaugurated on 24 March 2019 during the Kids Sound Fest.
Emilio Ferro's project was also strongly desired by the creator and founder of the Kids Sound Fest, Giorgio Pulini (1962-2018).
The work is part of the series of "Volcanoes Of Light" projects in which the artist explores the primitive force of Light and is made up of a monolith in black mdf with an octagonal base, which rises 5.5 meters, whose architectural structure was created in collaboration with the architect Diego Repetto.
Entering RESIZED VOLCANO the light of Emilio Ferro is the protagonist: the installation houses another volcano inside, a scale version identical to the external structure, from the top of which a beam of red material light radiates which reflects on the top of the building to then return to spread on the small volcano.
To the light follows the sound, penetrating the work with an original soundtrack, produced by Enzo Cimino, that evolves over time without ever repeating itself, thanks to a double audio system, with two different sound tracks crossed on the subwoofer.
A 360° sensory experience involves the viewer, catapulted to another place by the fog in which the work is immersed, which is joined by the heat emanating from both the internal volcano and the vibrating platform on which the installation rests.
