Bright metamorphic rock built classic beauty. In rasping video hymn, Moreno evokes Venetian striations of time.
About Marmi, Artist Statement: Marble was widely used since ancient times for sculpture and construction. The low index of refraction of calcite, of which it is mainly composed, allows light to "penetrate" into the surface of the stone before being reflected, and gives this material a special brightness.
Venice is the setting. A stone-made ghost floats upon the waters of the lagoon.
"...we might well doubt, as we watched her faint reflection in the mirage of the lagoon, which was the City, and which the Shadow." - John Ruskin (1819-1900, English art critic, poet and artist), The Stones of Venice
