Dreaming Architecture (2016)
The project series documents "Dreaming Architecture", a digitally created performance by Pettena in 2016. The performance consists of a photograph of a long baroque art gallery. Added to the photograph is an image of Pettena seated with legs crossed draped in a robe. Pettena appears to be floating in the middle of room. The project is a reference to "Il Mestiere Dell'Architetto" (2002) that represents the difficulties and possible impasses in architecture. However here "the symbolic interpretation of architecture is here ideally transformed by overcoming, in the dream, the difficulties and restrictions of choices and paths, as well as the risks of mistakes and downfalls." 
The project series contains a photograph of the performance.
