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 Scorpion and the Spaceship 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.
The sacred scorpion rises from a gold-flecked terracotta vase, which is the detailed 3D reconstruction of one of the ornamental vases in the frescoes by Girolamo Muziano in the Room of Metamorphoses. Its sharp tail stings a sphere, feeding the spacecraft's complex ecosystem."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
