This is not a necklace...

Concorso "Premio Leonardo"

Location Modena, Italy

Year 2009

Description In the ideal image of necklace, the garden finds a complete yet open shape, enveloping and encouraging to circle and stop in the middle. A garden, therefore, that can be looked at both from the outside and inside; that is looked at and at the same time looks at. The "construction" system of beads and strings, was rigorously translated in terms of soil and vegetation. Colored foil plates contain gravel clods sedimented according to their consistency, and thread the pattern where the blooming bushes and evergreen shrubs are fitted, establishing a movement of volumes and colors, like precious stones along the strings of a necklace.
