First there was the Hyper-diamond: a topological and almost completely symmetrical structure, conceived in 2009 by the french computer engineer Raymond Aschheim in order to optimize and complete the decoding of the standard model of particle physics.
Then there was a place, the Methow Valley, a specific territory in Washington State where a community decided to preserve the local pristine biodiversity through an invisible geo-political approach. One of the most basic and general structures meets one of the most strongly connoted ones. These are the premises for the interdisciplinary project Doors & Keys, which arose from the ability to combine the specific with the general, chaos with order, and from the need to find a link between different researches and languages increasingly distant from the public at large. It is an attempt to unify different micro-worlds through the connective mediation of light. A phosphor surface such as a standard-sized door is located in five different places and filmed at the sunset, at the exact moment when the natural light is disappearing. At the moment of the very last light frequency, when the green ray appears the video records an improvised drawing process with an ultraviolet lamp, documenting the transposition of the ray onto the green drawing traced in the phosphor: a drawing process which seems set to slow down and perpetuate that ephemeral moment of cyclic transition. Five places, five loops, five points, five landscapes are simultaneously interconnected within a single installation.
