This video, inspired by Tlemaco Signorini’s painting L’Alzaia (1864), which theme is the difficult condition of the poor working class compared to the indifference of the master, which represented the rich class. The painting has a formal mathematical symmetry, that resembles Piero della Francesca’s works. In this way, the artistic duo Leoni- Mastrangelo, uses the symbols of the painting mixing them with the symbols of the contemporary world, to think over the power of technology and its constant evolution, and how it could create, in the near future, a mass situation of “slavery” cause by a technocratic and indifferent kind of power.
