tredmill, curtain, motor
200x400x250 cm ca.
Taking the idea of Massimo Bartolini’s according th whom “art is a matter of invisible”, Di Tillo has conceived a machine for exercise of thought. A tredmill running was redesigned and transformed: in the exhibition room the object was laid on a sill, in front of a window obscured by a curtain. The machine offers the visitor an unusual perpetual path, the feeling of constant friction of the passage on the roller, a potential way out, which always implies an effort. Not excluding a possible failure, that difficult rise, however, could produce the tension required to reach the threshold between what is real and what is moved by the imagination.
