Guilty landscapes

A sculptural installation; Adolfo Natalini wrote in 1971 “…if design is merely an inducement to consume, then we must reject design; if architecture is merely the codifying of bourgeois model of ownership and society, then we must reject architecture; if town planning is merely the formalization of present unjust social divisions, then we must reject its cities…" …Architecture is one of the superstructures of power. This is a rejection of the power and its grid; a symbol of the alien inserted into the familiar landscape; flattened, geometricized, ordered, anti-natural, anti-mimetic, anti-real. An order of regularity, certainty and uniformity. Stone, metal and concrete abstracted into a singular geometric form, to create the cell of the system, woven into, interlocked, stacked or aligned to.. You have the power to shape that system of whatever order, in our guilty landscapes."

…Architecture is one of the superstructures of power. This is a rejection of the power and its grid; a symbol of the alien inserted into the familiar landscape; flattened, geometricized, ordered, anti-natural, anti-mimetic, anti-real. An order of regularity, certainty and uniformity.

A grid a symbol of a fabricated reality; that artificialyl structures and holds its own determinacy and potentiality. A symbol of the alien inserted into the familiar landscape; flattened, geometricized, ordered, anti-natural, anti-mimetic, anti-real. An order of regularity, certainty and uniformity.
