Rossoscuro Design – 2012
The swing is a strongly evocative object, inspiring personal thoughts and recollections. It recalls both the reassuring rocking motion of early infancy and the experience of a zoom: a visual field that widens and narrows in the vortex of speed. The swing is our first experience of almost flying. It moves alone in silence, and it is always there for us when we search it out, with its regular rhythm that helps us to reflect. The pine wood is also a reflective environment, mystical and at times spectral.
