[saˈlɔ] [ˈsɑlo] [salˈo] - COORDINATES OF HISTORY / ALGORITHMS FOR REALITY is the approach of an unknown location – based on a performative research in the virtual space. The artwork is a hypothetical reality in which current data and historical information mingle. Virtual movements, layers, different points of view and connections, information overlay, reality glitches and definitions – an archiving process of intermediate spaces and data. The virtual capture of a site: Salò – [Village, Lago di Garda (IT)]. [1942-1945 under Mussolini] Repubblica di Salò. The former ministry of foreign affairs: today an accommodation for tourists – the Hotel Laurin [Pier Paolo Pasolini’s residence, 1975, while shooting his movie Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom].
