It took place Thursday, February 21 at 18:30, in collaboration with Ca ‘Foscari, the installation that visually reproduces the noise of fermentation.
Project and installation by Nicola Di Croce
With Cristina Seraiotto
Promoted and supported by 47 Anno Domini
Produced by the Ca ‘Foscari Foundation (FSE 687/2017 – Impresa Inn-FORMATA La formazione che innova le imprese)
With the technical contribution of Claudio Bellini
We promote the creation of an audiovisual artistic installation dedicated to the story of the fermentation process of its wines.
The installation was created to bring visitors and customers of the winery to the transformation of grapes into wine, where the process is invisible because it takes place inside the cisterns, or behind their surfaces. We therefore intend to “take out” this process, through a visualization of the vibrations produced by fermentation, and at the same time participate in the experience of fermentation through listening to its characteristic sounds.
Wine is a living element that undergoes a great transformation during the fermentation process. This transformation is detected by microphones immersed in the cisterns, or arranged in contact with them. Audio recordings thus become the material on which to construct a sound composition, which is then digitally processed and translated into visual impulses. The resulting video is then projected onto the surfaces of the cisterns themselves.
Nicola Di Croce
Architect, musician, sound artist, doctor of research in territorial planning and public policies of the territory lives and works in Venice. His research focuses on the relationship between sound environment and city and territory planning. This relationship explores the processes of urban regeneration, participatory art and the multiple trajectories of local development that can be activated through the maturation of awareness to listening. The environmental recording (field recording) is at the center of his artistic practice, which proceeds towards a redefinition of the perception of the landscape, where the sound language becomes a narrative device, therefore an intimately design tool.
