1993 Passaggi/Trails

“Passaggi/Trails” came to me as the next logical step of “Tracks”. Fields that had been harvested by machines are, as a result of the passing of the agricultural tools, imprinted with peculiar geometric patterns.
It was interesting to interrupt these fortuitous mechanical designs with man-made routes that would superimpose a different grid on the existing one.
The result reminded me of the animal trails that sometimes mark the landscape in the wilderness as well as on pasture land.
This work was performed in the hills of Val Tidone near Piacenza, in Autumn.
