Lorem Ipsum

Print Email

The work is an installation placed in Michelangelo Buonarroti's cloister in the Baths of Diocletian in Rome which is nowadays overstuffed with ancient roman marbles of minor importance.
Three prints of 1x6m size, report a Latin text of 45 BC called “lorem ipsum”, used since the 16th century as a "fake text" in the creation of graphics. This filling function performs efficiently as visually similar to a meaningful text but absolutely devoid of any meaning. The work plays with the assonance between the filling function of the text and the marbles which are arranged in the cloister without any historical perspective.
