Imaginometric Society &
Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (IT)
The Imaginometric Society, founded by a group of students from the Brera Academy and the Milan Conservatory of Music, created the project that represented Italy at the Quadrennial Stage Design Exhibition in Prague (June 2019), which was awarded the Award for Imagination.
The Milan Experiment develops the research on human imagination begun in Prague, adding new possibilities to the Imaginometer, the instrument designed to demonstrate the first imaginometric principle: imagination is what makes us human. Admitted one by one into the heart of the Imaginometer, the Performative Machine, visitors will live an immersive, personalized and unrepeatable experience, relentlessly realising the second imaginometric principle: imagination increases by reflecting itself. The collective imagination of the Milan Experiment will draw the face of the next research, linked to the third imaginometric principle: imagination cannot be reproduced, but only recreated each time.

“There is nothing more difficult than following someone who knows they are being followed.”
A Private Detective, Rimini, 2015
SOLO is a site-specific project that works on complex urban spaces, such as large train stations, and the people who populate them, a humanity in transit and circulation, with its own peculiar rhythms and travel times.
SOLO is a journey, an individual walk that places the spectator, the viewer, at the centre of a network of possible relationships, of a crowd that moves, like the cog in a larger system.
SOLO attempts to generate an alternative view of a place that is known and accessible to all, without processing what it sees but opening itself up to the construction of parallel, possible and reproducible universes.
Where: Garibaldi railway station, Piazza Sigmund Freud
