Title:
Toxic Air 11 on/off

Author:
stefano.diloreto

Description:
Techique: plexiglas, stainless steel, led; whith stand Dimensions: lenght 23cm, height 41cm, depth 15cm About the artwork: The “weight” of the invisible. With this sculpture we want to focus on atmospheric pollution. Plexiglass was used to make the air transparent. With lashes of color the invisible toxic nanoparticles, the so-called air killers, are metaphorically broken. The bees, the first indicator of pollution, were collected dead in fields treated by toxic pesticides and inserted into the sculpture to give them a “new life”. The point on which the artist focuses is the weight of the invisible and how much it actually escapes us; it is not an abstract invisible, but a concrete, material invisible that, escaping our sight, we do not perceive and underestimate, yet it exists. It is an invisible who has a weight, but who, above all, has the strength to penetrate us imperceptibly, and worse, to kill us slowly …with every breath. The invisible toxic nanoparticles that pollute the air and that contaminate our cells and our DNA …the “weight” of the invisible.
