Video Game: the exhibit'
The Grid - building the infinite
It all started with this woven ceiling and its electric blue lights and, on the other, this immediate reference, a mental image imprinted on our minds since childhood: Tron, which borrows the aesthetic codes of the first video games, whose graphic universe, although refined and minimal, exudes extraordinary strength. Tron exploits the space of the video game and injects the body into a world of pixels and the physical into the virtual through the same seemingly infinite space-time. It is constructed by the grid. The various apparatus define the body of the exhibition. They take shape and structure themselves through the grid: seats, screen supports, light surfaces, tables, picture rails, showcases containing objects, technical blocks, mirrors to multiply the grid and allow entry into parallel worlds. Lastly, a series of luminescent lines and objects are deployed throughout the space, punctuating it. These elements are sometimes dynamic, providing signs and light, creating depth of field, acting as reference points and accentuating movement.
