A section of an electronic sky, suspended above the visitors heads: has fallen to the ground trapping within the glossy reflection of the floor the image of a dove. Up above, in the monitor, the “upside down” gaze of a Weather satellite travels and investigates the surface of the earth. The narrative of Traiettorie Celesti (Celestial paths) took it’s cue from the title of the event we had been invited to: “L’amour de Berlin”. The similarity in sound with “le mur de Berlin” suggested we investigate the Wall as a border that limits the areas of the world. Today the eyes of satellites, the instant communication systems, the penetrability of the frequencies would seem to override all forms of boundaries. But perhaps new invisible barriers exist that widen gaps and protect privileges, nets in which even our symbolic “dove” can end up being trapped, a symbol chosen for its ability to find ways to overcome boundaries and walls.
