... In the “Gnomoni” (Gnomons) series, 1975–86, the artist folds the sides of a rectangle, transforming the flat figure into a three-dimensional one. Implicazioni, Gnomoni (Implications, Gnomons), 1986, is made up of five variously folded elements made of iron. A gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts a shadow; struck by natural light, these bent structures could project shadows that change with the passing hours, visualizing the rhythm of time. The certain structure of geometry twists, multiplies, and becomes an enigma to be deciphered, a space of possibility. Uniting science and humanism, Varisco proposes complex perceptual experiences of space and time that increasingly take the form of questioning and doubt.
