Virginia immediately focused on the Orco, the stream that runs alongside Rivarolo Canavese. She observes it on Google Maps and wants to reach it, but she can’t get there in any way: every path seems blocked, by physical obstacles along the way or by others of an emotional nature. Her artistic reflection of her moves, therefore, to the “denied river” and its interrupted paths: she maps them with a tracking app, photographs and studies them and then reworked them through cyanotype and Gum Print techniques.
