You are the Xfect Bomb, made of ecological material by Paola Tognazzi.
Live interactive storytelling sound performance
Concept: The secret origin of who we decided to be at this precise moment may be found in laboratories, a phone call, a diary page written on a train while watching the landscape passing by at full speed, where do ideas come from? that’s a big question nobody can really answer, there is the cause effect, the associative process, there is the desire, the answer to a specific need or problem…a matematical approach, an emotional one..Here I won’t find the secret origin but by finding and showing the moment and place when it appeared the already processed version on the medias of our so called pop culture, even though it is seemingly superficial it’ll show the future we are closer to. We live in, a culture where information doesn’t come anymore by few sources on paper, but came in many formats  via television, radio, music, internet and within internet: via youtube, social networks..etc. internet per se it’s intrinsically multitasking and gives you multi perspectives.
I focused my search of the secret origin of ideas on tv shows and movies, because those are a very sophisticated representation of ideas. Why sophisticate? because they are processed ideas, manipulated to be able to take the shape of a story …a story needs details, timing and a time development: beginning middle end….aka a resolution…and to this all has to be added the emotional capacity to comunicate with the viewer. It’s said that anything you are able to express can become real. In the moment you think of something this something belongs to the realm of reality. In this work «You are the perfect bomb, made of ecological material» I’ve been taking materials from a variety of tv shows along an historical evolution, from the beginning of television to nowadays, like an historian who searches for the roots of ideas and changes in society psicology. because once they appear on television it means that they are not abstract seeds anymore but they have been already incubated and developed therefore somewhere out there those ideas are not ideas but a reality. The structure of the editing is like a cryptogram that the audience has to decipher, a set of words connectable in sentences with logic. I say logic and not meaning cause any attempt to express a meaning is very close to be an attempt to brainwash, to convince someone of something- but here in this collage, it is the interpretations of the audience the one to create links and associations of their own subconscious brainwash. The brainwash we do to ourself everyday. The brainwash that define who we decided to be.
