Roberto Zanata – START-UP
START – UP (2015) is the second of my audio/video work generated by a given pattern using various node data. The main intention of this work it’s focused in the possibility to use audio/video objects to implement dynamical processes to the design of a kind of living sound-imagine organism. The goal is always the intention to create an intersection between the audio object and the video object and not just a simple synchronicity.
By theoretical point of view in my work there is a cause for reflexion on the perception even if I am convinced that the problem of perception bounces immediately back to itself. If it represents the attempt to attest our primordial and original openness to the world, this attestation is however never complete, it is never completely expressed or expressible. Something indeed remains. This constitutive openness of the perception, which helps it establish its paradoxical character, is well expressed by Merleau-Ponty in In Praise of Philosophy where, in the pages dedicated to the philosopher Henri Bergson, is stated that reaching the core of perception would be the same as seizing the meaning of the world, but which, however, remains and cannot but remain a scrap in the expression of this seizing.
