The poet and philosopher Lucrezio describes the Nature of Things with a surprising attention for the explanation of phenomena.
His Latin poem discloses the reality of the cosmos and humanity with precursory contents of the modern science.
De rerum natura
is a work devoted to the union and disunity of atoms, the vastness of the space, the temporal development,
the intellect, the human core from birth to decline. The work gives a vibrant and vivide glaze on natural things in order to
describe the infinite mutation of the world and the cyclical regeneration.
This orbital revolution stokes the desire for movement of six bodies, connected by a hidden and hot blooded thought.
An anatomical draw flows from the articulation of the gesture and spreads throughout the thinnest parts of the body,
penetrating from the epitelium to the bones. The bodies are connected in a scenic composition where the construction,
the distribution of the elements and the relation between correlation and interdependence create an organic and breathable totality.
