artificial swimming pool, artist book, 100 pages, 2018
The book collects the outcomes of a research about the artificial environments, that took a swimming pool as the site of investigation. In particular, a photographic series that documents varying atmospheres during the annual refilling of water is showcased. In this, the effects given by the artificial variations of humidity, light, and temperature on air are at stake. In this sense, it is a study of space today, a time we can control climate and the elements, but also a narrative with an atmospheric climax. Indeed, at the end, the air of the pool is saturated. Due to the absence of a traditional character in the narration, the book aims to challenge the idea of the subject in the context of representation and the arts. While it is suggested that the atmosphere per se can be a subject today, the boundary where objects stop and the environment starts is put into question.
