Our artistic research, in the last three years, has moved from the traditional space of art to the outside one, in the everyday spaces of people, in parallel with the beginning of our collaboration. Our personal productions in fact have been united and transformed directing itself towards a kind of communication on a large scale, interacting with urban situations and with a wide field of different targets, that explains the choice to work with the written communication, the WORD like means of clear and comprehensible expression and, at the same time, opened to readings and interpretations. What we want to do, in the site specific context in which we go to operate, is to visualize questions and matters that could make to reflect the people that live a place, that could make them dwell for a moment to think the context in which they are. The questions, the wait and to be able or unable to FEEL, are some of the contents of our research, and the generic choice of subjects in our sentences pushes the user to interpret that of whom is speaking.
