“Overflow” is a site-specific multimedia installation which develops the theme of "Nature" by simulating spatial evolution on the map of Rome and Pigneto, of a very special organism: il Physarum Polycephalum. This particular single-celled mold is endowed with extraordinary intelligence and memory skills – albeit devoid of a nervous system – making it the subject of many scientific and artistic studies.
The map on which the’RGB travels and expands, it is the perfect terrain in which to test the skills of the Physarum, reinterpreted in a situationist key through psychogeographic maps and the drift technique proposed by Guy Debord.
By identifying the places where the RGB truck will pass and stop to screen the works, the system will create the nourishment necessary for the Physarum to evolve, leaving the command of simulation to innate wisdom in basic forms of nature. This suggests that the respect and observation of these processes is essential for a harmonious evolution on the planet.
