Il progetto ha al suo interno diverse aree di sviluppo e per la mostra presso la Placentia Arte sono state prodotte due installazioni site specific e due video.
you are not a salmon, è un progetto multidisciplinare e cross-mediale che muove la sua azione nellorbita del concetto di inversioni di flussi: dinamiche naturali che solo in apparenza sembrano sovvertire lordine costituito -tipico di una certa visione occidentale- in un divenire che evidenzia quellinnata vocazione della natura a contestare se stessa, rifondando le proprie leggi e restando di per sé perfetta e ineccepibile

you are not a salmon, is a multidisciplinary and cross-media project that moves its action within the orbit of the concept of "reversals of flows": natural dynamics that only superficially appear to subvert the established order typical of a certain western vision- in a becoming which highlights the innate vocation of nature to challenge herself, but this also applies its own laws and prejudice itself perfect and flawless. One example is the salmon, a living being with unique features: born in fresh water, grows in the sea and reached maturity, traces the river current to return there where was born to reproduce. The instinct leads him to make a gesture that seems paradoxical (trace the current), but which in reality behind delicate and precise trim. The man followed this founding principle in accomplishing his own evolution, applied chemistry, genetics, physics, pursuing an engineering, developing a model with controversial results. The project has various development areas and for the exhibition at Placentia Arte were produced two site-specific installations and two videos. Sensitive to issues of social and environmental sustainability, energy and food issues, new forms of adjustment imposed by climatic variations, you are not a salmon wants to also highlight contradictions and rhetoric underlying certain ecological extremism: W.E.L.T.O.K. Light, is a big voltaic cell -based on natural electrolyte- that feeds an inscription led and represents perhaps the energy production from higher operating costs of the story and with the lowest productivity. In this sense, the Green Economy may not be the desired oasis in the desert, but only the sinister mirage of the same myopic eye. If it is true that evolutionary processes have led to a progressive rejection of some work and the emergence of forms of social evolutionism based on income rather than on production, it is equally true that the macroscopic limit of this system is under everybody's eyes and even more devastating effects. Enjoy your life follows the oldest Archetypes of manpower and technological needs at least four individuals who with their boost in rotating the blades in order to produce the electrical energy required for the operation of two lcd monitors that display other videos belonging to the series Le déjeuner sur l'herbe.
