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 Planet 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!*
This is the very first video of the collection, the one that opens our journey. The slow sequence shot of a virtual handheld camera guides us to the discovery of the exoplanet where an alien intelligence has collected all the relics and memories of humanity. But, unlike in the classic iconography of science fiction stories, we don't land from above. We emerge from below. We rise from the dark depths of the planet, transformed into the messy warehouses of a lost civilization, to discover this story within history. What year are we in? Where are we now? What happened to our home, Planet Earth? We wonder and wander, while the viewfinder of our drone- shaped eyes glimpses the precious fragments of a fresco kept in a magical cubic case, and bizarre machinery bearing the faces of ancient divinities. The question is idle since this journey from below is the journey of the unconscious and the dream. - Francesca Fini
