Davide Balula is a kind of genius. He belongs to that kind of artists who melt sciences, technologies and philosophy to produce a wonderful poetic work, both entertaining and clever. It’s necessray to take time to immerge yourself in his universe, understand the interactions between the elements, see the machines move slowly. In his conception, mechanic has a life on its own. It’s fascinating. For instance, this wall of clocks, each giving a different tempo. They seem to be human, with emotions. BCh
