Michele Ardu is a photographer who, with a background in Biomedical Engineering, has started experimenting with ways to break the limits of human senses. This has led him to MUSICA, a collection of 'Sound Portraits' which allows the audience to experience music and sound via the ''sight sense instead of the hearing one.''
Ardu adds: By intercepting the sound, before its energy is transformed or dispersed, I was sure I could witness the effects of sound waves with a natural malleable element. Because of its filiform nature, the smoke lends itself to the music's self portrait, like a statuary marble column in the hands of a sculptor.''
The titles come from popular compositions. One is Elton's Candle in The Wind. Bryan Adams, Michael Jackson, Queen, Plnk Floyd, and the Rolling Stones are represented too.
