Land art Installation

about 100 x 50 meter
After Costellazione Toro, built in 2013 together with Massimo Giannoni we keep on developing this topic by updating it to a different and more immersive experience by bringing visitors to "walk" along lines ranging from a "star" to another and appreciate, imagine and dream about the transposition on the mainland of this little piece of sky.
This installation (and the choice of the Orion constellation) is a tribute to the land of vineyards Poggio al Casone, Tuscany highlighting the dualistic nature of the wine, with its lights but also its darkest sides, both inseparable parts of the concept of zoe, indestructible and cyclical life, key concepts at the origin of the cult of Dionysus. And the dark side will be given at night, lighting up the stars of the constellation with the creation of sound carpets that stars "emit" from within, sounds created for the occasion by sound designer Massimo Magrini (Bad Sector nicknamed in art) inspired to some characteristics of the stars themselves, creating a dreamy atmosphere that will accompany visitors along the path of the constellation.
