Categories > Dissemination

voce vajont
In March 2015 Latitude was interviewed by Stefano Moras and Alan Luca Nan, the two authors of VOCE  – a blog linked to their project for 2calls for Vajont competition – on the work the platform has developed for Calamita/à and in general on the relation between memory, disaster and landscape.
Focusing on the relation between architecture, environment and urbanism, Latitude wants to promote the ideas of VOCE as it offer a good chance to share opinions and rethinking about the Vajont dam as a support for artistic and urban researches.

On july 18, Latitude with PILA 40 is going to introduce the lecture on the project CALAMITA/À – Investigations and Researches on the Vajont Territories by Gianpaolo Arena and Marina Caneve.

The project CALAMITA/À is a territorial survey tool that through a planned research wants to study in depth the ongoing transformations in the region, generate debates, reveal weaknesses, attract interest and knowledge around a place that has still to be well defined. Morphology, orography, infrastructures, social context, are only some of the analized topics. Art, sociology, urbanism and photography contribute to the definition of territorial identity with an open multidisciplinary approach. Thanks to a plurality of points of view CALAMITA/À wants the territory becomes a laboratory and a favored observation place.

VAJONT WATER BASIN MODEL

The research on the Vajont disaster CALAMITA/À – Investigations and Researches on the Vajont Territories is going on.

We are ready to pour the transparent synthetic resin in the model of the Vajont water basin as it was before the landslide and we are almost ready with the model representing the volume of the mountain slope that fell into the basin on that night in 1963. The two forms will become a scaled witness of the quantities involved in the dynamics of the tragedy.

Experimenting with Resin

26th May 2014

Categories > Research

Latitude is exploring the possibilities offered by transparent synthetic resin in modeling water shapes. The research CALAMITA/À – Investigations and Researches on the Vajont Territories is the opportunity to investigate the representation of water forms, the effects and grain it requires at different scales, also in relation to the space it occupies. The aim of the forthcoming model will be the representation of the water basin’s volume of the Vajont before the landslide of 1963. Thus the shape of the mountains will be just the mold of water, in a new relation of interdependence where the fluid becomes the new lead actor in the story.

Categories > Exhibition, Research

serigrafia vajont

Latitude started to experiment with handmade serigraphy on a dedicated poster for the research project CALAMITA/À – Investigations and Researches on the Vajont Territories – curated by Gianpaolo Arena, Marina Caneve and Allegra Martin – for the 5oth anniversary of the Vajont tragedy. The project is conceived as a tool for investigating a territory through the exploration of the changes in progress, generating questions, revealing critical points and attracting interests and awareness on a crucial place such as the Vajont dam and surroundings. Art, sociology, urbanism and photography  and a plurality of visions contribute to the definition of the project through an open, multidisciplinary approach and are aimed at transforming the perception of the territory.

Latitude is developing a series of artifacts, the first of which is a serigraphy-poster , focusing on the cartography and the representations of that territory especially over the last century.
