Topologies (Excerpt) - Tiepolo from Quayola on Vimeo.


Audiovisual Installation
2ch HD projection | 4ch sound
Duration: continuous loop

Topologies is an instalment of the Strata Series. Differently from the previous Strata pieces, Topologies does not describe a process of transformation, rather it focuses into the observation of objects that are already fully transformed. The subjects of these new pieces are two iconic paintings from the Prado Museum’s collection: “Las Meninas” of Velazquez and “L’ Immacolata Concezione” of Tiepolo. Following the rules behind their visual composition and colours, the two masterpieces have been transformed into digital fabrications through the use of custom software. Topologies consist in the exploration of the digital objects created by this transformation process. The outcome is not a narrative film but rather separate objects of contemplation... Literally “digital paintings”. Commissioned by onedotzero for the BFI Gallery, London
