Hillsideout

wood meets concrete.

Reflections about locks lost in antique doors, about keys without locks and about a great construction material: the cement, lead to the construction of this table. It has been assembled using for the top an old entrance door of poplar wood from the beginning of the 18th century, for the frame boards of chestnut wood recovered in an attic and for the legs cement made in the neoclassical style.

 

The concept of keys and locks is reflected in both in the phrase engraved around the table, which says in Italian "Since a lot of years several keys forgotten, I don't have the courage to throw them away and to admit that they don't have locks anymore" and in the top itself, where you still can see the holes of three different locks originated during different centuries, which lead to the idea of immersing three antique keys.

 

For the video projection, which takes place above the two surfaces of cement, were chosen images of ivy for strengthening the importance of a path and tracks.

 

Used materials: entrance door of poplar wood from the 18th century, old wood of chestnut, resin, concrete, antique keys, video projector with video DVD
