Somewhere in betweenDavid, artist — Spiaggia La Tagliata, Ansedonia (GR)
Between April and October 2021 daylight in Capalbio and Vladivostok will almost have the same duration and the hours of sunrise and sunset will match. It’s as if Capalbio was just a few kilometers from Vladivostok but what separates them are 9 time zones. A remarkable connection that I have also wanted to explore physically.
In Vladivostok there is a glass beach, like the ones in California, where the tides have slowly reduced and blunt large quantities of vitreous fragments. The photographs that I have seen look like enlargements of grains of sand, from which the idea of my project. I have asked someone to ship from Vladivostok a few grains of glass collected from the beach, which I have then pulverized and dispersed along a beach of Capalbio. I then took some sand in another area of Capalbio’s beach and with the help of a local artisan I realized few hundreds of colored glass grains. These will be sent to Vladivostok and scattered along the glass beach.
