καλειδοσκοπεω [vedere bello]
(it’s a word from ancient Greek that does it means “see beautiful”)
” I thought lately of the joy I felt as a child when I laid my eyes on the kaleidoscope and with a simple gesture of rotation thanks to those fragments of colored glass I created a new world, precise, clean, an endless array of colorful emotions and grace.
in our life time each one of us must take their pieces and put them back together again to be able to look at the truth.
in the life time of this society fragments of an uncertain reality, often confused, rich but fragile, where past present and future seem to overlap in imposed velocity, the pursuit of beauty in a game of fragments of light allows me to expand the senses, give peace to the mind, feed my eyes to the vision of tomorrow .
This is the thought that has nourished my creativity for this project : the need to catch a glimpse of a possible hope for the revival of beauty in this world, the desire to look with bright eyes of adult reality and with enlightened eyes of a child its possible future. ”
