Drops is a reconstruction of a bedroom made of paper. It contains a bed, a floor made of loose boards, a closed door, layers of wall-paper on the walls, a ceiling of transparent skies dripping one into the other and pouring everything into the underlying room. A multiplicity of sounds and lights; an ever-changing buzz in the background that spreads in the external environment as well. A slow inexorable transformation. A total sensory experience.
The bed: a wrapping of transformation; an intimate space; the big cradle, in which each person wakes up to be rapidly thrown into the world. The intensified centre of space; the unity of space, time and action; a sort of niche, from which everything has originated.
Each corner of a house, each corner of a room, each enclosed space where to curl up and huddle represents an imaginary privacy, that is to say, the germ of a room, the germ of a home. In this corner we can recall memories in silence. The first value that we perceive is its immobility. "The corner is a sort of half-box, half-wall and half-door". The corner also means wait. There is no emptiness since there are two (sometimes merged) geometric realities. The function of home-living combines fullness and emptiness. And as Gaston Bachelard says: "The existence fills the gaps and the corners are crowded with images".
