Boombox is an installation that envisions the dense city of the future and its habitats.
The approach proposes a projection of the twenty-first century megalopolis through a superposition of boxes representing architectural entities.
The basic module of the installation is the cardboard box. Appropriated from its original use, it remains a symbol of precarity, containers, and nomadism.
Just like contemporary cities, a unitary space is born from this apparent chaos. The ever-growing city is pushed to the limit; the space is ultra-dense and saturated to its limits. The floor, the walls, and the ceiling are merged together, creating a loss of senses, orientation, and gravity. A mirror reinforces the matrix through multiplicity, pushing the boundaries of perception and creating a spatial abyss.
Cities and graffiti are linked, and here in this installation they merge. They both share systems of proliferation, occupation of space, and appropriation of place.
The result is a total invasion of the space, para-siting the smallest crevices of the site. The space is saturated and supra-tagged, turning the space into a white explosion, sampled and re-transcribed as a three-dimensional equalizer: it’s the “X” moment of an urban aspiration, which carries the shouts of the people and of the streets. The brutality of the proliferation contrasts with the softness of the white, creating an ambivalence of senses, an organic introspection in this cosmological space.
This vision of proliferation envisions a futurist megapolis matrix with an ultra-capitalist urban landscape:
The city below, horizontal and proletarian.
The vertical cities, middle class, columns between the two cities.
The city above, inaccessible, sky’s the limit.
