Abbasso il grande vetro
(Down with The Big Glass)
The work stands as a reflection on the growth and sustainability of our future development. It draws inspirationfrom the essay The good news of Ivan Illich, after-development and decrease as the needs ofconvivial society by Serge Latouche. Abbasso il grande vetro is a sculpture in motion made up of onetank, one weight, one lance. Initially the tank is full of water and it rests on the ground. But the tank ispunctured and, within a not controllable time, it is completely empty. The water flow changes the balance:the tank, once drained, rises to the top while the weight moves down to the ground. Only “from below”change is possible.
