Giacomo Costa – Serie Atmosfere, Timescape 10_275 – 2018

Can you talk about the 2018 Atmosfere series?

It is called like this because I imagine a world without atmosphere as if we were in space.

So there is no longer the density of the air nor the sounds.

The project at the beginning had to be a series of shots, then working on it I decided to turn it into images that changed over time.

Let me explain better with an example, the customer who buys one of these works of mine buys a backlit photo with a frame, as if it were a simple light-box. In reality within the frame there is a large monitor with very high resolution and the image changes slightly from day to day. This happens because what we see is a video made of 1000 frames and one is passed every several hours, if one passes every 24 hours it would take about three years to witness the whole mutation! A city slowly collapses day after day, or a volcano erupts, this work during the collector’s lifetime changes with him.
