Once the courtyard of our farmhouses were places where people met and talked about the strenuous day of work in the fields. May be they stayed sit looking at the clear and dark sky. Nowadays these places are abandoned and no one is looking at the sky any more. That's the reason why the chair is empty and the mirror reflects the sky that the missing observer would have looked at. The red light creates a surreal atmosphere about a sky that is seen but not abserved at the same time. Dario
