104

Trevisani’s project was born from a continuous evolution, a series of ideas and images to be developed within the technical properties of the Technogel® and the concept of connection. 

The artist started from a reflection on telephone lines, investigating this technology which is capable of connecting us with anyone we wish, wherever they might be; lines are linked to one another by means of a simple selection of figures, numbers combination have the power to emit communication. His research then opened up to séances: a further hint on how communion among people may create a connection through hand-contact, and how this simple gesture may join different life experiences.

Trevisani has developed this bonding concept into a basic module of two hands – joined together by the thumbs and index fingers. Modules have been hinged in a circle and overlapped until creating two inverse truncated cones positioned one on top of the other, according to a sequence of creasing and decreasing multiples of three. The work of art counts 104 modules following this combination:

2 x (3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 +11 +12).
