Resterai con me per tutta la notte (You will stay with me all night) is an environmental installation spanning along the entire perimeter of MAXXI L'Aquila's Sala della Voliera, an artwork that is 4 metres high and about 40 metres long.
The artwork is an attempt to transform the architectural space and activate - through these large shapes, large shadows without a defined form - a perturbing mechanism in the public, a mechanism of interpretation and discovery by digging into their deepest memories.
The title Resterai con me per tutta la notte - borrowed from a verse by P.O.E., one of Numero Cromatico's artificial intelligences - is a further stimulus for the audience and alludes to the projective power of ambiguous images, even after a long period of time and during our dreams as well.
The shapes are part of a visual alphabet comprising letters, symbols and forms, collected over the past few years, also through the use of artificial intelligence algorithms.
The installation aims to stimulate in the public that typically human capacity to imagine, confronting one's inner contents and seeking to question, expand and transform what it means to be human and what it means to be part of a natural organism so extraordinary, as our planet Earth.
