Inauguration of the exhibition "Visione Unica: Cultures of Environmental Manipulation" the second outcome of  I-DEA, a project of Matera European Capital of Culture 2019.

Drawing upon a variety of local archives as well as unorthodox sources, which implicitly complicate and question the definition of what is an archive and what it means to store information, Visione Unica is an installation made up of five projections, ten screens and a small selection of vernacular objects.

Upon entering the exhibition space, the screens and objects are arranged as a panorama that can be perceived in its totality. The visitor is invited to read the screens and what they contain both individually and in relation to one another. These very heterogeneous materials—photographs, scientific cartographic information, documentaries, historical documents and interviews—are exhibited through a single medium, film. At first glance, they may appear to be too distinct from one another, yet with the passing of time a unifying theme emerges: the anthropization of this territory. This phenomenon is explored by bringing together materials that illustrate contemporary, modern, vernacular, scientific and magical strategies for human manipulation of the environment. This is not so much an attempt at depicting technical and scientific approaches as a more effective evolution of primitive systems, rather it is an exploration of human relationships with the surrounding environment as something extremely complex that requires constant observation and re-evaluation.
