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 Warriors 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!*
"I set the fifth video of the collection in a desert. We have reached the driest landscape of the exoplanet.
Golden dunes guide us towards a machine with noisy gears, powered by futuristic alien photovoltaic devices: an exotic structure with mysterious functioning and unpredictable intentions. At the center of the machine, we see a metallic armor, which is the perfect 3D reconstruction of one of the beautiful armors painted by Girolamo Muziano in the Metamorphoses room at Rocca Sinibalda Castle. Muziano painted two armors facing each other on the opposite walls of the room: one male and one female. Here the visionary painter adopts a very original and unusual solution for the time: the warrior and the she-warrior challenge each other on the same visual level, with a graphic equivalence and a perfect symmetry of weight, colors, and dimensions.
The male and female elements are the sides of the same coin, in a mythological scenario which is by its nature continuous, holistic, and, therefore, digital long before the digital age."- Francesca Fini
*The campaign is valid until 31st of October.
