Magnetic-Tango Video 3.40


MAGNETIC TANGO – video 3.40 min.

Searching frantically for a place to stop, this couple of suspended magnets follow an intense choreography to finally find refuge in stability.

The fixed magnetic fields diffused by the base, push and pull the mobile in a pre-determined path. There is no form of chance in these movements. A natural magnetico-gravitational intelligence tries to find the best compromise to use as little energy as possible, in either direction.

The natural friction pushes to a stop, and the journey becomes a dance. The illustrious Osvaldo Pugliese, the traditional symbol of the fiery tension of tango contextualizes this quest in an emotional dimension.
