DROPS. A Journey into the future

Cosimo Scotucci as Architects

The Future is the place where we project all our dreams. Often books, movies, stories and fairy tales portrait the future as an utopian fantasy, where everything is beautiful and we can all live peacefully together. Is it possible to envision today the World of Tomorrow? Is it possible to take people into an oneiric dream?

 

DROPS is an art installation, made of luminescent glazed drops scattered on Caorle's cliff that absorb the light during the day and release it at night transforming a the defence tidal system into a social and artistic infrastructure. A composition of colored drops recall the imprint left by the waves. During the day the installation looks like a mosaic, as a reminiscence of the nearby Venetian tessellations, and at night it change completely, revealing a new and unexpected beauty, transforming the landscape into a dreamscape. The drops are entirely made of glass, with a photo-luminescent pigment that brings innovation to the most traditional material of the Venetian area.

The artpiece is placed in the darkest spot along the reef, illuminating it, it increases the safety and it amplifies the already extraordinary touristic value of the city. DROPS is a new place of Wonder, triggering the imagination of the people, aiming to stimulate the imagination of a better World.

 

DROPS is a part of a biannual Artist in Residence program promulgated by Scogliera Viva – Sculpting the Sea and the Municipality of Caorle.
