The precision of the blurred


In Prato, as in Luxembourg, the material is volatile. It’s programmed with different densities. The Chamber of Commerce is perforated by unexpected voids. Its walls and floors go from opacity to transparency, via all the degrees of intensity in-between. The set of surfaces is broken down into ‘pixels’, with the programmed intensities breaking up over a square grid.
