Mirror video- duration 1: 27 minutes
This video talks about the “relationship between the architecture of prisons, designed and conceived to limit, and the creativity of prisoners to overcome these limitations.
The small gesture of a subject sentenced to silence in a prison that is already a punishment per se, transforms a heavy concrete and metal wall into another “being”, an entity with whom he interacts. Thanks to the creativity of this prisoner, he is no longer alone and the wall is no longer a wall.
This piece addresses the issue of isolation with great precision, evidencing how creativity allows us even in the limiting moments to find ways to re-signify our own bodies to establish new forms of communication, simple but powerful ways of affecting the environment and even the physical laws that sometimes they hold us away from others.
