LORD is a sledge made from an inflated tractor tyre (24") with 9 vulcanised rope handles.
The design is based on a hand crafted 15th century wooden sledge, made in the northern Italian region of Valle d'Aosta.

There is something beautifully simple about the old wooden sledge.
The craftsman, its creator, made the sledge according to a clear set of rules. The world today has lost this kind of simplicity and focus. Our life is no longer built around one single interpretation but rather allows for many different interpretations simultaneously. Objects have become a lot more complex and are constantly changing. Analogue to this experience my sledge no longer fits a set of rules, it is no longer made from wood, nor is it designed to run head down. The new sledge is inflated and round. It's out of control and dangerous !

The project 'La Forza delle Cose' was curated by Fulvio Irace for the Regione Autonoma Valle d'Aosta.
