Sedition is delighted to release A Dream in Stone, Francesca Fini's stunning new project that turns the amazing Renaissance frescoes of the Medieval castle, the Rocca Sinibalda Castle near Rome, into a cutting-edge digital art collection.
The Coat of Arms is one of 8 video artworks comprising the special collection A Dream in Stone by Francesca Fini. Each artwork in the collection is inspired by a key SciFi theme: Earth after the vanishing of humanity.
"In this video of the collection I explore the vertical format. We are now in the archive, most secret and mysterious place, where the symbols of the Castle are kept: the scorpion, a tutelary animal that inspired its stony shape, and the heraldic coat of arms.A precious golden and red satin capsule contains a cloth where the heraldic coat of arms of Rocca Sinibalda Castle stands out.
The coat of arms of ancient dynasties is a layered visual synthesis of their history over the centuries. In those colors, shapes, and images we see the perpetuation of legacy and genealogies: feuds and alliances, military conquests, marriages and defeats. The history of the castle is contained in that symbol, now kept forever in its time capsule."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
