13º Class  "With layers a difference arrives"

Layer is a functional, as well as a semantic, organization of information. Traditionally is applied in Geometrical drawing but it is a form of organization that covers many disciplines, from Painting to Psychology.

"More than a drawing on a canvas, the world is an overlap of canvases, of layers, of which the gravitational field is only one among the others"

 "Più che un disegno su una tela, il mondo è una sovrapposizione di tele, di strati, di cui il campo gravitazionale è solo uno tra gli altri"
