Details:

A new infinity sign to symbolize the birth of the Third Paradise. What is the Third Paradise according to the author's concept? It's the fertile coupling of the first and second paradise. The first was the Earthly Paradise that came before the eating of the apple. It's the natural paradise where everything is regulated by the intelligence of nature. The second is the Artificial Paradise, the one developed by human intelligence, by means of a very slow process that has reached an increasingly vast and exclusive dimension in the last two centuries. This paradise is made up of artificial needs, artificial comforts, artificial pleasures and every other sort of artifice. Confronted by the universal problem of humanity's survival, the artist conceived the global project entitled Third Paradise. The biblical reference does not have any religious purpose, but is used to give force and meaning to the concept of responsible social change and to fuel a high ideal that unites, in a single endeavor, the arts, the sciences, economics, spirituality and politics.
