‘Silence/ Shape’ by Filippo Minelli
Minelli’s work sets about creating a visual obstacle within the everyday landscape. It is interesting that this interruption of the quotidian is both out of context with the landscape yet its interference is something of vast contrasting beauty. Minellie describes his project as creating chaos that engages the users imagination. This engagement with the users senses is what drives the success of this project.
“Decontextualization of a violent tool changing quickly the surroundings, creating chaos, blinding the eyes, used in natural landscapes,” [Minelli, 2012]
