Today’s humanity is going through difficult times. It is an important moment when we can choose to become a strong collective consciousness able of transgressing any social differences, whatever they may be, cultural, religious or group ones. Such a major recalibration might be the chance for our future.
THE STRING is an expanding art network project, a long-term work in progress that aims to wrap the world in a trace of solidarity and human cohesion, bringing a message of strength, resistance and hope by uniting people from all over the world that share the same strong belief: humanity needs a second chance.
The theme of a continuous work of art has its roots in a previous experiment THE TRACE, where the artist tested the ability of an artwork to transfer information from one canvas to another into an informal act of spontaneous expansion, an itinerary that explores the sinuous and unpredictable course of human existence.

WHAT IS THE STRING
THE STRING ARCHETYPE
THE STRING is a collective art catalyzer with deep roots in the social matrix. The common calibration of the actions in the social context supports the idea of the general good, higher interest, and awareness at a macro-social level. THE STRING route through the world is defined and developed by all co-authors, who work together as a collective consciousness. The succession of cultural and social environments that THE STRING segments reach, shapes a social dynamic continuously expanding social sculpture.
The string is a symbol of connection and interaction. The repetitive modular character allows an equal and uniform development, so that each segment part of THE STRING path is inscribed in the same semiotic coordinates with those that precede it and with those that will follow in the process of creation.
From a visual point of view, the twist in the spiral generates a sense of tension in a minimalist register. THE STRING is transferring the repetitive features of the series into a unique artistic act, each module being the same and yet different from the other, each link of this human chain having the specific characteristics of an original work of art.
