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 Motherboard 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.
Live and discover the experience for yourselves! Everyone who purchases the full collection will receive a night stay in the Castle in the historic heart of Italy alongside the Eternal City. An inspirational and not-to-be-forgotten experience!*
"The journey to an artificial alien planet, where an alien intelligence collected and stored the memories and relics of humanity, takes us to the operational center of the Macrostructure.
We visit the Central Computer Area. I created this scenario using a 3D elaboration of one of the facades of the great courtyard of the castle. Shining ribbons depart from the stone walls, conveying digital information to and from the heart of the structure. The castle repeats itself and multiplies, reflected in the water mirror of its underground cistern. We are now crossing a large portal guarded by Minerva, standing out in one of the fake bas-reliefs painted by Girolamo Muziano. Emerging from the deep water is the Motherboard, crossed by iconic metamorphoses: the Winged Victory (Fire), a tree (Earth), a luminous marine wave (Water), and the mutilated statue of Venus, mapped with a serene Renaissance sky (Wind).
The Motherboard holds an egg in her wombs, and Minerva is reflected in the shiny egg, visually affirming her dual role of protector and protected. As well as the inhabitants of the castle, simultaneously guarded and guardians of time.."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
