DETAILS
War Games by Diego Perrone is a reflection on free time: model-making is transformed into a maniacal search for perfection in miniature. The reproduction on a thin metal sheet of naval engineering technical tables - with hulls, propellers and all the other construction details - is enriched by the presence of the hand of the model maker, which also becomes a constructible element. The hand alludes to the human presence of a protagonist who is somewhere between Dr Strangelove and a YouTube tutorial. In the words of curator Francesco Garutti: "The time of the hobbyist [...] stretches and expands in the mind, it extends and contracts in relation to the manual and mechanical processes of production [...]; it changes scale and meaning in the parallel world of the eyes and hands of its own creator and builder". The work's support is engraved with an advanced method that allows maximum precision even with thin plates less than half a millimeter thick: the subject is printed in negative on the metal plate which is immersed in acids that corrode the parts that haven't been printed, making the cut-out image more precise than any laser cut.
