L’ombra del temps

The work, “L’ombra del temps” (The Shadow of Time), magnifies the very own space that makes up the courtyard, without disturbing it. It highlights the moment, following the trail of time by the shadow cast inside the courtyard of the Episcopal Palace, marked by the ringing of the bells of the Cathedral of Santa Maria every hour. This synergy between the Palace and the Cathedral, through the footprint of both sun and sound, allows us to represent time through the language of shadows.
