And while his waiting for his Lord, he makes a curious machine, that shows to the eye many amazing things.
C.Goldoni, Il Mondo novo
The art of illusion has always been able to involve people’s senses, making them uncertain about the reality. Thanks to optical tricks, new images take form, created to enchant the viewer. He watches“ a reality that allows him to explore other worlds, fill the voids, make the absence presence, carefully shape desires”, and becomes a real projection for his ego. These are New Worlds.
The curiosity about the mechanism of New Worlds, comes from the desire to go boyond the bidimensionality of surfaces trying to chase an emotion instead. Daylight is used to illuminate an usual scene, but is during the night that fantasy doors are opened and the viewer is projected into a New World. Here, usual schemes do not exist, replaced by unconscious rules, able to amaze whoever wants to follow them.
