In 2009, Italian artist Filippo Minelli started his analysis on silence. This uncommon analysis was sparked by video footage of political demonstrations, and his background research in political science. The results of his analysis was Silence/Shapes, an examination in silence and wonder.
Silence/Shapes is an ongoing murals, the place he decontextualizes smoke bombs in uncommon places, resembling nature and deserted buildings to give them a bodily form. By doing so, it leaves an open discussion board for interpretation, whether or not it’s political or spiritual. By highlighting the great thing about a smoke bomb, it exhibits how magnificence could be present in extraordinarily hanging contrasts.
From the artist:
It’s one thing that manifests itself, one thing you could’t clarify. Silence and lightweight are all the time there, particularly within the pure or deserted environments I search for. When you go to them by your self you understand there’s something that incorporates the panorama, and that factor is silence.
