Confinement.lands is a project that started during the first confinement period in 2020. It consists of a corpus of works. including a video piece and a website. The video piece includes recordings of photogrammetries taken during the same period from a web platform (Display land), that depict confined houses, places, and people all over the world. The piece aims to propose an outlook towards the reappropriation of intimate spaces and the disappearance of the role of urbanism, replacing it fully with a virtual one. The shutdown of a big part of our capitalistic machine has created an empty meaning in our constructed public spaces, neighborhoods, streets, and playgrounds and has put the focus on the important concepts of our already damaged social structure: from the notion of time and hysterical mass consumption and production to the ultimate expansion of our social-economical inequalities. Goethe Institut – The Viral city JURY STATEMENT Confinement.Lands is a striking journey around the world reconfigured by the pandemic. The photogrammetries that people of all ages and on every continent have made available are as bizarre as they are touching, as astonishing as they are intimate. The way Cinzia Campolese compiled the extremely diverse range of spaces and situations in which people around the world experience the confinement creates a fascinating cartography and ultimately even a new sense of community within the isolation.
