Web House

Workshop Vol.1, August 2011, Etna Volcano, Catania, Italy.

Workshop Vol.1 is a one-week free and open laboratory in the Etna forest, near Nicolosi. The starting point is the condition of abandonment of some wood areas of the volcano, used in some cases as abusive landfills. During the workshop were realized two versions of the Web House, the web made of nylon wire that allowed people to cross the forest with a new modality between the trees. Here an animal-man is possible, able to realize his own web through a biological process. The Web House doesn’t present any hierarchy between its elements (elements without a precise function and use) but just defines the space in a fleeting way.

Partecipants: Salvatore Catania, Giuseppe Crisafulli, Francesco Distefano, Gianpiero Gangi, Adelaide Loiacono, Roberta Pellegrino, Santo Toscano, Carmelo Tosto.
