Cielofuturo exhibition at the Basilica of San Carlo presents Francesco Tosini’s latest research on video feedback. A large ledwall placed on the floor projects shifting patterns of abstract and auto-generative digital paintings. This programming software creates a range of interaction effects; visual sources constantly repeating themselves causing an auto-generative process.
The art installation is positioned in the middle of the church and it creates a multimedia abstract space, which it generates an infinite number of random reactions with an autonomous behaviour. The single pixel is in constant mutation: its expansion and contraction is determined by lights’ modulation. This implements an artificial morphogenisis altering dynamics of natural processes of the inorganic dispositive.
In the dim light of the Romanic Basilica, the synaesthetic musicality of moving images enters in relation with the transdimensional sound environment composed for the exhibition by Cortex of Light. The generative system is based on a series of patches that reproduce some of the morphogenetic processes present in nature.
Francesco Tosini is a multidisciplinary artist working and living in Milan. Using analog technologies, 3D and generative software, to produce mainly moving images, he creates a cosmology that lives in between the virtual and physical world, underscoring the affinities and differences to be found between these two realms.
Through a non-linear narrative and a visceral charge of psychedelia he examine the digital apparatus itself and its potential for immersion, giving life to synesthetic universes that evoke collective unconscious and primordial memories. His works has been presented internationally by various institutions and organization including Sonar d+ (Barcellona, Istanbul), Experiment Intrinsic (Londra), Fondazione Prada (Milano). Galleria Inconsueta (Milano).
