Iridescence #1 (spectrum)
Starting from some pictorial studies on the light by Giacomo Balla and some musical compositions by the minimalist Terry Riley, I wanted to symbolically represent the light spectrum and its movement generated by geometric and mathematical elements repeated in the space. We see a repeating matrix, a cell generated by the meeting of two fractal forms drawn with mathematical exactness.
Iridescence #2 (enigma)
The shape recalls the ancient symbol of the hexagram and consists of the overlap of various equilateral triangles, opposite or specular, made with slight differences in the dimensions and shades of blue or light blue, almost creating a sort of vibration, reverberation and movement inside the dark space.
