R.O.M.E. @ Corviale

R.O.M.E. @ Corviale

The Rome Open Museum Exhibition adventure started at Corviale, a complex and particular periphery, rich of contradictions and social problems. In the common sense the Serpentone is experienced as an imponent concrete block which erases the view on the the wonderful roman countryside and on the City, important sign of a colossal aberration of the urban design, of the architecture and of the conception of the public space.

Here R.O.M.E. intervened with a big urban interactive installation, Painteractive4Architecture by Pasquale Direse, an artwork through which the public has painted the large lateral facade of the Serpentone (The Big Snake) with and without any other support then her own hands, through light and with the vibration of sound landscapes.

Rome Open Museum Exhibition transformed the last block of Corviale into a
creative lab for the art mediated by the new technologies and the active intervention of the public who colored and let “vibrate” through sound environments, a vertical wall of more then 2.000 mq. Signs of light and urban echos generated by the quarter’s inhabitants who could experience an inedited creative action.
A pilot project that showed non-conventional profiles and potentialities for a
creative happiness of a problematic public space as Corviale.

Painteractive4Architecture @ Corviale

A interactive urban installation of light and sound that allows the audience to paint and draw with their own fingers into an empty frame from which is visible the facade of the Serpentone.

Every gesture of the hands generates at the same time an armonic echo, a sound environment gestured by the fingers of the spectator who draws and paints on the architecture through videographic signs and light colors.
