Mud on a Glass Canopy (Milan)
An undisclosed client in the fashion business asked me to survey a turn of the century building vacated by the leading Italian newspaper, in order to prepare a feasibility test for their future headquarters.
Quite unexpectedly I found there the perfect location for an outdoor temporary artwork and a landlord favorable to my project.
I used only dirt and pollution dust harvested by rain water that I channelled to drip in specific spots of an existing glass canopy.
Looking at the result, unpredictable in part, it reminded me the work of Richard Long, tough I did not wish to emphasise the human touch and I rather enjoyed its more “natural” look.
