"Alberto has purchased smarthphone" is a sculpture of the "condensation dispersion of matter" cycle. This sculpture reinterprets the Alberto Giacometti's famous sculpture "L'omme qui marche- 1960" in a modern way. The human figure that Giacometti was already manipulating in order to highlight the disintegration of matter in this sculpture I bring to the limit the disintegration by inserting in the sculpture the empty. A vacuum not due to the disaggregation of matter due to the difficulty of existence, but due to the lack of aggregation of all the elements that make up a true is complete human being. This difficulty was partly due to the handheld object from the figure "smarthphone-computer". We are becoming and will become more and more an assembly of images.informations and notions coming from new technologies and we will have more voids and deficiencies (empty in sculpture). Disaggregation may be less intense as we will be completely doped by the flow of information. I have imagined this sculpture or how to make sculpture an upgrade or update derived from the fundamental lesson of Alberto Giacometti both from the point of view of the siglated and of social anthropology and the technical mode.
This work is one of the 50 works selected for the "Welcome to the machine" exhibition held at the Turin (Italy) Polytechnic November / December 2019.
