What inspired you to submit your piece to the Art By Chance festival?
It’s an awesome festival: it brings together videos, stories and fresh ideas in places of transition where you get bored easily, like while you are waiting for a bus, for a plane, for a train.
You don’t have to go to a cinema, in a gallery or in a museum, have a seat and look at the videos. You just stand in front of them. And if you want, you can watch them.
Plus the 30 seconds limit was simply challenging, amazing.
What does Change mean to you and how does this relate to your Art by Chance video?
The word “change” contains in itself the power of a R-evolution. I don’t believe in overnight, shallow revolutions. Sudden changes are not real changes. That’s mainly because everything has consequences. I believe in “changing”, I believe in day by day evolution.
My video has the aim to communicate the fact that a lot of people try to change who we are.
They try to overwhelm us to achieve more power, every time, everywhere: your boss at work, your Prime Minister, even your girlfriend/boyfriend.
They try to remove differences, they want you to resemble them. But maybe, that’s not the right way to live.
Maybe the real revolution, the real change is to accept who we are, wait for an epiphany and be happy.
Is there a place that you are particularly excited that your video will be screened?
My deepest dream (maybe my forthcoming goal) is to find a job in London and move there. I simply love London. I’m really thrilled that my video will be aired around the city!
What is the best thing about making 30sec videos?
I love limits.
The more they are narrow, the more the creativity will be challenged. In 30 seconds you need to have a synthetic and strong idea.
Moreover, I don’t like videos that have no story, that kind of videos too arty. And I like when my brain is challenged, more than my eyes.
