Since the beginning, Giuseppe Lana’s work has been based on the ambiguous concept of “deformation” as an excuse to analyse the human condition related to the unpredictability of events. From these considerations originates the new “DRON project", that formally takes the distances from the previous production and introduces a new way of working.

An important link of the chain is the relationship with the time DRON 5; Chronos, as unit of measurement. Through this process the artist personalises its personal experiences. Using its own hair, he proves, in an intrinsic way, the temporal experience. Even if in an imperceptible way his hair change colour; black diminishes just like time.

This can be considered a fragile work that tells about an organic and human life cycle, which respects the rules of nature. Through this process, initiated in 2008 and still in progress, the artist, getting to the heart of the matter, fractions into a unique process its own time, thus documenting his own existence. With an “ephemeral and auto-referential” impact, DRON 5 is a work that can involve everyone. Just like a hard disk, hair record and preserve the individual memory.

To this day DRON 5 is made of more than 45 spheres that change in colour, size and weight. Read less
