Environmental installation.
The +rr project is an installation which captivates the audience through visual, auditive and tactile stimuli. The artwork’s centre is a table carved throughout the years by the scratches of 400 cats living in an old country house. The audience will be overcome by the sound of the cats' purring in low frequency, which will reflect on a spectrum modifying perception.

Fattore soggettività
The artwork consists in the realization of a guide book and two synoptic charts which report formulas and graphics related to the rational method study and the endless possible interpretations of the reality that surround us. Fattore Soggettività will disclose us the various horizons opened thanks to the “subjectivity” factor.
