The body of Christ, 3' 17", 2019, Italy
The body of the Crucifixion incarnates human pain in a state of physical tension. The model is transferred into a calculation software and associated with a heat-sensitive material: some faces are stressed by various temperature gradients, transposed in proportional movements in the space of the single points. Numerical evaluation goes into research within the body, trying to represent pain and spiritual tension through the tension of the material.
