LeonardoWorx’ Secrets

LeonardoWorx’ Secrets

Secrets are something that is kept or meant to be kept unknown or unseen by others - or the title of LeonardoWorx‘s latest personal project. ”

Secrets explores my insecurities, my hidden fears, more in general the dark side”, Leonardo says. “I could have created the dry ice block digitally but I opted for the real thing: I liked that I was being able to touch what I was filming and having a kind of interaction that couldn’t be controlled mathematically. For example,  I used the warmth of my hands and poured ink on the ice to change its shape. I wanted to enhance the reality of the matter, the sensorial feel not just through the choice of material but also through the camera work.”

I filmed the video in one night and when I woke up in the morning I looked at my hands and I could hardly move them - actually my left hand’s little finger was completely black and it felt like it was burning! I thought it was quite funny that I had this burning sensation because I held such a cold material… the downside is that I ended up at the emergency room and told EVERYONE that my job was to repair fridges”.

Art is apparently another secret.
