Questi sono i titoli:
1- Il vettore che ci viene incontro, è un riferimento impreciso.
2- Il vettore riferito a uno spazio possibile
3- il vettore che ci viene incontro riduce i riferimenti
4- Il vettore che ci viene incontro si allontana
5- La storia è come un vettore, più ci è vicina e meno sappiamo valutarla.
6- Il vettore che si allontana finisce in un computer
This work, divided into three sequences of sic pieces each, is a typical example of "equivalence". The key to the equivalence lies in the titles, which are equivalent to each other, whilst the subject of the picture changes. Considering that a philosophical or physical problem can be vulgarized, that is, made public, in different images reflecting the same thing, I thought I would translate on to six blackboards the path of a vector, representing it in diagrams and surfaces. Then I recovered this statement in terms of familiar emails, images of objects and images of persons, setting up a time and a place for a "didactic history", a history of objects and a history of persons. The proposition "Events precipitate", infact, indicates the importance of time in the path of things and of persons.
These are the titles:
1- the vector which meets one half way is an imprecise reference
2- the vector referred to a possible space
3- the vector which meets one half way reduces the references
4- the vector which meets one half way goes away
5- history is like a vector, the closer it is to us the less we are able to evaluate it
6- the vector which goes away finishes in a computer
