I'm working since May 2001 on the live cinema performance 'Blue Stories' and for Devolve Into II I intend to develop some of the concepts and materials of the project in order to merge my materials with all the other contributions.
I'm particularly interested in the creation of layers, transparencies, acoustical spaces. Empty territories which can be inhabitated by everybody's materials. Spaces in between ready for hospitality. A complete presentation of Blue Stories is available on-line at the attached URL.
