I play violin, with few interruptions on the way, all my life. Musicality, through violin. and Taoism through Feng Shui, is the way I expand my private interest into the professional realm.
Itzhak Bentov on his book `Stalking the wild pendolum, on the mechanics of consciousness`says:
"Suppose we tune two violins, then put one of them on the table and play a note on the other. If we watch carefully, we shall see that the same string that we are playing on one violin is also humming on the violin that we placed on the table. Clearly there is a sympathetic resonance. When we draw the bow over a string, it vibrates at its own natural frequency, which we call self frequency. When the two violins are tuned they create a system within which it is very easy to transfer energy.". On a certain extend this concept is applicable to masses and built environment and the theory of G. Bohme enters into play when talking about athmospheres.
Anima Migrante has been a way to find peace and a place within myself as a migrant woman. Under the name of "Anima Migrante" I have done two projects: 1. In 2011, related to Italian migrantion in
The Netherlands. It has been presented at the Prinsenhof in Delft and for the scene I used cardboard.
2. in 2013 Psychological female migration. Presented at the Rietveld theatre in Delft. This project has been extremely valuable because for the first time in my experience I could find a western way to discuss about Feng Shui, and how we shift from a mental space to an habitative space. I worked with intuitive Feng Shui, hence with the use of senses and imagination in conjuction with a psychologist, Silvia Micocci, who in time became a dear friend, art therapist who has a psycho-physiological approach to her profession.
This project has been the one to redefine myself as soon as I arrived in The Netherlands. I was eager to move on professionally but there was no way to move on professionally considered several factors: economical crisis, where me as a new comer, new mother, I could just be at the very end of a long line of people trying to move on. The country welcomed me very well despite circumstances and at the time I exposed at Bacinol 2. As a student I was really driven by deconstructivism, based on Derrida`s philosophy and luckily in 2009 it was 100 year of the of the Italian Futurist manifest. I used cardboard tubes to create a scene in the room. and printed picture folded around the cardboard tubes.
