32 Stills, 13’23”, 360 degrees
32 Stills, 13’23”, 360 degrees is one part of an audiovisual triptych by Mattia Casalegno titled Pomegranates, Grapes and Seashells. Exploring the ‘still life’ using photogrammetry and computer-generated animation, the artist creates 3D animated grapes that rotates slowly in space. The edges are distorted due to the limitations of the imaging technology, photogrammetry. Traditionally used for topological surveys, the technique assembles bi-dimensional pictures together to create tri-dimensional objects. In Pomegranates, Grapes and Seashells, Casalegno applies the technology to a series of fruits and natural objects, providing a survey of its shape and form as interpreted by 3D technology. The forms are animated and float in space, and are accompanied by an ambient electronic soundtrack by Martux_m Crew. The three works in the series have been presented as a three-channel installation at the Young At Art Museum in Florida in 2016.
