Potential Self-portrait (Lat N 45 ° 37 '12.00 ", Long E 8 ° 50 ' 24.00", 29.01.1977, 14:00) is a large wall installation composed of hundreds of matches, each of which represents a star in the sky: an architecture apparently fragile and harmless which, like the life of a man, can be consumed in few seconds.
The title of 'Potential Self-portrait (Lat N 45 ° 37 '12.00 ", Long E 8 ° 50 ' 24.00", 29.01.1977, 14:00)' takes us back to the coordinates of a time and a place "others", revealing a potential mapping, a personal reflection on the relativity of the concept of time. But if what seems real is nothing more than an elaboration of information, then the question of time leads inexorably to a reflection on the dilemma of being?
