“Nomadism is a practice of time-displacement, a process of remembering or actualizing, where virtual actualization is a form of creation” – Gilles Deleuze –

(A walk around the new time - in a timeless island city)

The Nomadic experiments are an ongoing project that changes over time. Lived days and visited places will be time and space within which the artis experiments different forms, materials and ideas based on the concept that space could provide the most precious of materials and time should be the main instrument for the transformation of the first.
The development of site-specific interventions, after a previous design phase, will be made in relation to the changes arisen from the encounter between project theory and its manifestation in reality.
The creative intent of the intervention , would be it painting , sculpture, installation, print, responds to the need to break away from reality to approach another reality. The city and / or sometimes isolated other times familiar lands become an escape from an enclosed space leading artist from one place to another, as continuous source of random situations. By creating multiple temporalities the artist traces the processes that take on a meaning not so much in relation to a possible audience but in the fact of having been conceived and, along the way, realized. The practice of nomadism and the experimental technique bring with themselves a sense of displacement and can not be reduced only to the post-production phase; they are rather a way of rethinking the production constantly changing point of view.
According to an approach in motion the artist researches, documents and experiences progressively different conceptions of reality that result in the final appropriation of time within the experience of space.

"Take a chance and step outside". – Joy Division –

There is not a definitive place we are heading to. The only constant is change. Actions and concepts that we develop in the process of doing something (also art) trigger an irreversible change in cultures, customs and ideas of the whole humanity. This is not just a presumption; it is an unequivocal and incontestable real fact. Our culture is the ensemble of symbols that we share in order to understand each other. Who Am I? Where do I come from? Where Am I going? There is nothing more beautiful than wandering. Surrendering adrift. Moving through the urban space following the tinges of architecture, or just proceeding chasing marks left on the walls, is wonderful. Strolling freely without an itinerary, following only our own desires, fills with joy. By walking aimlessly through the streets of a city, we open ourselves up to new encounters and to small mnemonics treasures that suddenly reveal their contents. The environment surrounding us must be carefully observed before being acted upon. We can understand this complex and comprehensive contemplation of the surroundings as a vision of the world, because to grasp and to alter the environment through the use of images is a magical action. Following these ideas, the nomadic experiments of 2501 are developed in a constant flux. As a nomad occupying a space, who does not do it to cross its limits, but to settle in and to feel at home only for a limited time; he marks it with his own traits and then leaves it, letting the space live freely again and ready to receive another guest. The life of a nomad is interlude. He goes from one place to another, crossing an undefined space, which has no barriers or borders. The nomad has only a ground in which he can move and movement distinguishes him from other men. The nomad is not a migrant because he is not sedentary and does not leave a place that has become dull, amorphous or unpleasant to settle in another. The nomad follows unusual routes. He is defined by the movement. If a site is inaccessible or occupied it will be the territory in which the nomad moves to offer him new settling routes. Living is also about leaving a trace. Tracing a path is also filling a void. Through signs, often in black and white and of abstract nature, 2501 reconstructs sacred figures to recount a place that is not to be rediscovered, but rather temporally unconstrained; a place to meet and to exchange ideas that are free from prejudice. A safe place without bonds. An oasis of pure, intimate and spiritual freedom, where you can stop for a moment, over and above time. A place to tap or pour into our strength, and then continue the journey on the endless road that we call life.
