The base of this small work is the cut-out of a rather elaborate tuxedo bib shirt front. On the bottom edge I applied 13 droppers of different sizes, from the tip of which peeps out a small green glass bead, like a drop about to fall.
Moving the embroidery, the droppers send out a gentle, crystalline sound, like water. On the shot I stitched a cut-out of a very light, almost transparent fabric, on which I embroidered a sentence from Borges’ short story, “Funes, the Memorious“, to which two other works, “Il Memorioso” and “La mostruosità dell’eccesso” are dedicated: “Allora vidi il volto di quella voce che aveva parlato tutta la notte. Ireneo aveva diciannove anni, era nato nel 1868.” (“Then I saw the face of that voice that had been speaking all night. Irenaeus was nineteen years old, he had been born in 1868″).
