Giacomo Costa – Private Garden n.3 – 2009
Can you talk about the 2009 Private Garden series?
This series summarizes many of the things we said during the interview. In the past I always wanted to represent nature, but technology didn’t let me, finally in 2008 came out programs that enabled me to do it. The idea of this subject comes from the book A world without us by Alan Weisman. The author imagines a world where man suddenly becomes extinct and nature quickly conquers and cancels his work as if it had never existed. We believe we are eternal but in reality we are far weaker than nature which we constantly abuse. This work becomes important in my career because it is the one with which I was invited to the 2009 Venice Biennale.
