Filippo Minelli: Egofriendly

Tenna (Ausserberg) – GPS 46.751739, 9.341208


A solar powered ski lift in the center of Tenna has been transformed into a kinetic sculpture. Italian artist Filippo Minelli assembled 35 emoticons and other symbols known from popular digital culture into a rotating, semantic system recalling the Lumiére principle. As the lift circulates in a permanent loop, the power of the work lies in the repetitive, postulating character of Minelli’s statements, exposing the layering of ecological and political systems.
