Verba volant, scripta manent

Verba Volant Scripta Manent is a project about time and memory in times of flying information but it also represents a personal and unaware feeling of ephemerality of digital-based art making.

The work basically consists in a twitter bot perpetually posting the famous latin proverb “Verba Volant Scripta Manent” and a marble slab, on which is inscripted the same text using the look and feel of a twitter post.

The project has been publicly released in 2017, in form of an installation for the exhibition Segni Leggeri - Internet is not forever, which took place in Parma, and in form of an online intervention for Arshake magazine and a standalone browser-based work viewable at http://verba-volant-scripta-manent.online.
