Is a research to reclaim and rediscover the color of the mediterranean sea.
The protoquadro will be working using photos made by the artist and selected specifically to represent the color and the shadow of the sea around Sicily and themes connected to his memories. This piece is a proof of concept for a bigger one, in tree screens, that will be connected in real time to the flow of tidal currents.

The evolution of the painting in time will be influenced by real time data flows about the tides and the status of the mediterranean sea, either biological, oceanographic data and ethnographic datas connected with migration.

The artist intent is to make a protoquadro type of object that “cleanse”, while working and being watched, the ultramarine blue color of our sea from horrors and mistakes of humans.
