Marcella Giulia Lorenzi
"Philosophy is written in this grand book — I mean the universe —
which stands continually open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood
unless one first learns to comprehend the language in which it is
written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its
characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures,
without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of
it; without these, one is wandering about in a dark labyrinth".
Galileo Galilei, Il Saggiatore
This artwork is dedicated to the loving memory of Mauro Francaviglia, mathematician by profession, artist in his heart.
What is Universe? What is Life? What's the key to the fundamental
mysteries of our existence? The suddend and unexpect death of my
beloved husband and collegue Mauro Francaviglia, Professor of
Mathematical Physics at University of Torino (Italy) aroused with
more urgence these questions.
This artwork is inspired by Galileo's thought and other ideas of the emergence of the Universe as an act of Geometry.
Complex and fractal patterns on the Dark (matter?) background, form a chaotic primordial universe. Big Bang (or the "Eye of God") expands matter in small geometric solids. Many other geometric and symbolic shapes emerge or are almost hidden. Time and space co-exist in the mystery of the Universe. Or of Parallel Universes?
