Human Space (2012)
The project series documents the installation "Human Wall", designed by Pettena for the Galleria Enrico Fornello in Milan in 2012. The installation consists of a wall made of handmade balls of clay on which the handprints from making the clay balls intentionally remain. "The physicality and action of constructing is also accentuated here by the use of a natural material, clay, whose malleability and lack of homogeneity in themselves generate architecture, an architecture that can however be directed toward a mental use of space."  Another edition of this installation was presented at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in Salt Lake City in 2012.
The project series contains drawings showing the construction of the installation and photographs of the installation.
