In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way.
This work was created with support from ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016”, the Mondriaan Fund and The Netherlands Film Fund.

In a fairy-tale fashion, these three films tell the story of Italia Sicura, a project to uphold both school building, the hydrogeological disturbances fight, for a better development of water infrastructures, and 'acquepulite'.
Key point is to turn over 2,4 billions euro financial support into construction sites all over Italy: this is the main Italia Sicura duty as given by Italian Government.
Creative storytelling is represented in a positive way, thanks to a child-like drawing approach: each step in the story tells how these problems will be solved in Italy, from now up until 2015.
