Project promoted by Alberto Abruzzese and funded by the University La Sapienza of Rome.
Installation view: University La Sapienza, Rome.
The multimedia Installation consists of four interactive white cubes with the screening of a mosaic of videos and the streaming in internet on Second Life. A video camera shoots the faces in close-up and a voice tries to talk about itself with a question about the war. the interview is repeated in all the languages of the world.
The project WART (War + Art) assembles the real place used for the event of the installation to the virtual spaces of Second Life. The “Why?” wants to be a communicative-aesthetic tool of great impact, because of the self-creation of contents from the bottom, through questions which take the place of the answers, often predictable, of the media. The “Why?” makes the idea at the base of the Solstizio action to circulate: the narration of the realities and of the differences of the world through the voices and faces of its protagonists.
