black box 1:5
For the firm anniversary we created an installation of black rectangles with the sizes of all of the works made in these 15 years, but reproduced in a scale of 1:5.
Mario Piazza wrote a presentation text of the project:
“A wall of black rectangles. Regular, different, codified.
They are jekyll & hyde memories. They journey started 15years ago. In Milan. These are the black boxes of all of their works. They hold the complete registration of of the data produced by the firm. Formats, scripts, colours, materials. Ideas, schemes, dialogues, emotions. Joys, strains, achievements, defeats. Dreams, money, goals, relationships. jekyll & hyde black boxes are flat like some hard disks. They are a fluctuating ribbon that come into possession of the space: they hide with strictness and distance that reshuffle of graphic possibilities practiced by jekyll & hyde.
Their presence is firm. They want to reveal something important. They want to reveal something important to be searched in elliptic point and from strange perspectives. Something that has been neglected by the more ordinary thought. In 15 years they resisted to very high pressures and temperatures. But the visionary power of jekyll & hyde is still intact. Other worlds are still possible.”
