The exhibition on a 3D Platform:
On display two works out of my projects:
Title: Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid_Set 13.
The image is part of a project about Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid Book by Douglas Hofstadter.
By exploring common themes in the lives and works of logician Kurt Gödel, artist M. C. Escher, and composer Johann Sebastian Bach, the book expounds concepts fundamental to mathematics, symmetry, and intelligence.
Title: Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons_Set 87. (2022)
The image is part of a project about Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons Book.
Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Tender Buttons contains passages of automatic writing. Devoid of logic, narration, and conventional grammar, it resembles a verbal collage.
About the works Ennio Bianco wrote:
Pier Giorgio De Pinto (CH/IT, Civitavecchia 1968) is an artist who has an extraordinary sensitivity in addressing logical-philosophical, geometric-mathematical, and technological-communicative themes with a mastery of multiple artistic expressions and a lightness – in the sense that Italo Calvino gave to the word – that, to my knowledge, has few equals. In his works, marked by impeccable perfection, the viewer always finds a founding characteristic: the search for the geometric order of nature as a starting point for new experiences, new knowledge. A great interpreter, in a contemporary key, of the Galilean lesson: “The Book of nature is written in the language of mathematics, whose characters are triangles, circles and geometric figures.” For this exhibition he presents two works: “Gertrude Stein Tender Buttons” and “Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid”. “Out of an eye comes research.”, is not only a small fragment of Geltrud Stein’s automatic poetry, but it is also the principle that Pier Giorgio De Pinto takes on in presenting this work. “Research arises from the eye”, therefore research is the passage from seeing to looking, from perceiving with the eyes to reflecting on what has been perceived. And then the eye of AI becomes an exceptionally powerful eye, which returns an order of magnitude and fascination that leaves the artist and then the viewer stunned. In “Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid”, Pier Giorgio De Pinto uses the prompt to build an image that is extremely precise in its structure and strongly open to a multiplicity of interpretations. I dare to propose one, well knowing that it is not, and cannot be, the only one: while with Geltrud Stein he deals with the microcosm, with Kurt Godel, Maurits Cornelis Escher and Johann Sebastian Bach he deals with the macrocosm. A cosmogonic vision of the whole that brings us back to hermetic philosophical concepts, deeply rooted in our cognitive system.
