Una piccola radice per una pianta nello spazio, una grande radice per la flora terrestre

We are about to colonize new planets and to measure the resistance of the human body for long periods in hostile places. Plants will also accompany us, required for our nourishment and survival. I have built a sort of rudimentary treadmill that simulates phototropism, that is the movement that leads the plant to curve towards the directional light sources. With artificial light the plants will not make an east-west movement during the day following the sun. The gymnastic aspect serves to keep them in shape and reduce stress.

From an ironic point of view,this work is a reflection on the role of human sciences and the function of the theory with respect to the decentralization of the human being who no longer measures all things. The ideology of the free market economy has generated the anti-intellectualism that discredits soft science and places salvation and truth in the hard sciences alone.

Carlo Caloro

Carlo Caloro's research presents itself as an exploration into various artistic languages and the stigmas attached to certain elements of the contemporary which the artist translates into images: composite installations that arise from personal reflections and a synthesis of studies conducted by utilizing methods often borrowed from the humanist and scientific traditions.
Suspended between a logical and an abstract approach, every single work is both a physical and poetic experiment. His language often engages new technologies as well as craftmanship or performative action. His dual training – at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne and the “Silvio D'Amico" National Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome - defines him not only as an artist, but also as a promoter and "director" of events and exhibitions orchestrated within the independent space of artQ13 which he co-founded.
