"Puzzle Me!" is the narration of a great cultural project born from the collaboration between the Academy of Beijing and NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti. The scenography, conceived by together with Marco Cristini, is a platform of communication of strong impact, on which the Chinese choreographer Yang Jinag has let 11 performers coming from 7 different countries dance at the sound of the RUAN, a traditional Chinese stringed instrument.
Margherita Palli has chosen to match two materials which reflect the identity of the project and the symbolic and conceptual intentions of the show: the paper, ancient material that the Chinese tradition transforms into forms that go from objects to calligraphy, and i-Mesh, the essential texture, a symbol of the technological matter in its purest form.
Permeable backdrops and textures used as screens marking the projected images. i-Mesh is filter, sign and projection area at the same time. The study of the amount of void in the structure has a very important role helping the projected images to get the highest definition proving the amazing relationship between i-Mesh and the beam light.
Thanks to this result i-Mesh has been selected as Finalist 2016 for the category "Light and Surface Interior" for the prestigious Surface Design Award 2016 in London.
