aMAZElab spring 2006 : urban installations, art, architecture, design

aMAZElab is investigating the key points of territory and society, handling the great themes of changing realities from an artistic point of view. It sets out to create an anthropology of day to day life. It is not a defined space, a container of works, yet it is able to transform the territory into an ongoing workshop-cum-field of action. The city and its inhabitants are openly surveyed from a wide variety of observation points, following the movements of groups and peaking into the folds of urban living, opening up new spaces for discussion

CINEBOX. Omage to Franco Vaccari” Far away, 2005/06 video installation

Among the most important conceptual artists and great experimenter of video and new technology in the 70s, Franco Vaccari is well-known for his East-bound trips beyond the curtain, as used to be said before the fall of the wall. For Going Public05 he has produced a video on the Romanian community in Modena (Italy) which gathers around the orthodox church near via Emilia East, and their sentiment of distance from home.

The Cine Box is a mobile device for video projections in public spaces, designed by the duo of architects from Poland Medusa Group.
