SO MANY TIMES Installation


SO MANY TIMES emerges as a reflection on everyday human activities, focusing specifically on two familiar rituals: lunch and dinner....

I use a container to recreate a domestic environment, such as a kitchen or living room, devoid of windows or other escape routes. This allows visitors to view from a single perspective an apparently familiar reality.

The project aims to faithfully reproduce the act of eating at the table, highlighting how television has become a mechanical and constant presence during meals, almost an additional family member. This presence prevents fully appreciating the value of these shared moments.
