"They blend the colors of the hidden city with its evanescent hybrid identities: the day and night, the neon lights that illuminate the facades, the patchwork of contamination where new faces emerge, the crowds of passers-by, the subways, up to construct geometric shapes in which to play invent memories. the urban landscape, and its human bodies, perceptions become indelible. Its dynamics and characteristics are in the excess, in the static or nell'incompiuto. In these cities migrations and transformations are self-generated. Such a voracious bodies that reconstruct utopias. seductive idiosyncrasies in such imitation, repetition, the symbol and the sublime are connected all'estraniazione of modern alienation. Imagine yourself portrayed as an unexpected passer, in these vortex streets, between buildings - in a film flow of an unusual setting and unstable polymorph ". Camilla Boemio, 2012
