The 11th December 2012 I had the pleasure and the honor to interview Paolo Rosa, co - founder of Studio Azzurro with Leonardo Sangiorgi and Fabio Cirifino. At that time, I was an intern at Studio Azzurro and this interview was definitely an important moment of confrontation, emotion and great training for me.
The long interview is entirely contained in writing form within my Master Degree’thesis "Interattività e Narrazione nel Museo dell’Acqua di Siena." Here, a video extract in remembrance of that wonderful experience.
To my question: “What were the most significant episodes in the research on video- installations?”, Paolo Rosa replied: “The use of the video – projections. Up to a certain period, this wasn’t possible because of the projectors that were extremely bulky, uncomfortable and very expensive objects. When, in the early '90s, this technology was miniaturized and its use rendered much more easy, it seemed to us to break the monitor’s glass box. It 's like when you see something behind a crystal for a long long time and, at some point, you give a pickaxe to the crystal and a flow comes out, finally free...as if you had unleashed the image that was still there, artificially compressed in the box”.
