Ritual – Gesture of Light

Cristina Veltri – Ritual – Gesture of Light

Gesture of Light is about rituals in the socio-anthropological field, about rites of passage, which mark the transition of an individual from one socio-cultural state to another, and about changes that affect the cycle of life.

Light plays a fundamental role in everyone’s life, as it influences our actions from sunrise to sunset. Through its different intensities it gives a sense of security, spirituality and familiarity, creating various atmospheres that influence our moods and daily rituals. I have always been fascinated by the power of light, by how it fits naturally into domestic spaces, introducing twists, cuts, reflections on surfaces and changes over time, making us aware that beauty is everywhere if only we can grasp it.
