Just as painting covers a multitude of genres and styles, without ceasing to be painting, video art has a versatility of its own. From electronic manipulation to video performance, from a slide show to a short film, video often has more in common with painting then it does with motion pictures, with film, as it addresses the sensory rather than the intellectual, the affective rather than the rational. It's not easy sometimes to define the subtle differences between video art and short film. The work by Ilaria Pezone ancora gravità (non interessante) is one of these elusive cases.

A series of visual and aural marks strung by a thread of a murmuring voice, poetically reminding of the eternal constants, the bonds that keep our lives together.
