On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Valerio Dehò curated the exhibition Polytechne a bridge between scientific culture and aesthetic research created thanks to the installation of contemporary artworks in the five university areas of the institute.
Giorgia Severi will present the work EARTH NOW 42°04′55″N 14°03′36″E in collaboration with the Researcher Soil Science Department of Agricultural, Food at the Faculty of Agriculture of the Università Politecnica delle Marche and Food and Environmental Sciences.
Earth Now draws inspiration from the research carried out by the university in the Majella National Park in 2007, a research project that brought feedback between soil and climate change by studying the summit areas of the Abruzzo national park, a European periglacial limit. The video work entitled Earth Now wants to be a focus and alarm bell on the semi-permanent glaciers of Majella in the process of definitive serious withdrawal due to overheating. The title wants to express the concept of live on streaming as an open eye that observes the changing landscape.
