Compressions Houses

Compressions Houses are three different sculptures (3D printing, 2015) coming from the animation Time Bomb the Love (1997/98) which is a digital manipulation of rockets to the rhythm of techno music. Frame by frame, the missiles turn into very acid and synthetic-minimalist architectures I titled Compressions-Houses inspired by Newton Cenotaph. Through vertical-horizontal movements, the rockets disappear in straight lines and points, reappearing under the guise of defused bombs because transformed into architectures.

Chiara Passa

Chiara Passa, visual artist (Rome 1973) working in media art since 1997. I am graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Rome; Master in new audio-visual mediums at the Faculty of Modern Literature. Lived around for several years. Now I am living and working in Rome. My artistic research analyses differences in virtual spaces through a variety of techniques technologies and devices - often using virtual reality and augmented reality technologies as an artistic medium to explore architecture as interface. I use VR to comprise its intrinsic language and so on for shaking-up and challenging the static notion of architecture, by exploring the liminal duality between tangible and virtual place, achieving in art a strange oscillation between spaces. So, I work with animations, net-artworks, interactive and site-specific video-installations and VR video-sculptures and liquid objects. I explore VR in order to create site-specific video installations and video sculptures, using a wide range of google cardboards. Typically, the 3D viewers are installed all over the real space, designing geometric shapes in liminal areas, to highlight the paradox of the modern space-time condition, which nowadays is even more diluted in between physical and liquid space.
