The development of technology and the evolution of our imaginations are administering stress tests to the material world. This is leading to new ideas and visions of infinity. We have learned to escape reality – but also to reinforce it. As a result, we have started to see the space around us as a receiver of our own representations, imaginings and images. Michele Rizzo is making an attempt to make this understanding of space visible. Looking for the invisible in the visible and the virtual in the material. Spacewalk invites us into an abstract structure of possibilities and drops us in places where movement continues behind closed eyelids.
