It is Slowly Snowing
[ Personal Project ]

On majestic and unearthly idyllic peaks, men built permanent infrastructure, marking indelibly the entire surrounding. The culture changed from something scientific and elite activity to a consumer good experience.

An Anthropocene era with the goal of a site of recreation.
But what does it mean to move around in space?
Is it strictly connected to our ego of leaving a mark and dominant?

“It’s Slowly Snowing” tries to reflect on these questions through just the essentials for a light and fast documentation that aesthetically recalls a vintage past in contrast to the progress and innovation of split boards in a matter of independence and freedom.

The imprecise and stolen frame does not want to compose and direct the athletic gesture but simply the real documentation of happiness and carefreeness. The lightheartedness and the curiosity to explore the neighborhood with your own times, decisions, and spaces.

Moving with a slow movement, figures are melting with landscape and not being seen. Try to leave only short temporary tracks and not long-lasting marks in the landscape. Scouting unmarked area.
Tracking lines by digital and paper map exploration in a grid of railways. Hunt for the falling of energy sliding on the surface in a pure duality of machines: human-body and train engine.
Is that the future of human recreation and bound with nature?
