Cross Section 2, The Italian Job, De Nederlandsche Cacaofabriek, Helmond, Holland from saturday the 4th of october until sunday the 2nd of november 2003
We were asked to bring our work to Holland. Instead, we are bringing ourselves. For a whole month, we will be sharing our lives through mobile devices. For these four weeks we are taking stopframes from the stream of own experiences. Three men and one woman – Max Paccagnella and Filippo Moncelli from Ctrl.it, Stefano ‘Noce’ Ruggeri, along with a special guest star, Tosca Donato – take pictures of their lives with mobile phones. Those images are sent in real time to the ctrl server, stored in an ever-growing database, and displayed to the world. Two projectors present the project in the Cacaofabriek rooms, while your own monitor carries the story to the rest of the world.
We, the actors, began taking pictures the opening day and will stop at the end of the show, thirty days later. We are following a basic screenplay scheme, but will shape stories as our lives intervene.
