a medida do mundo [The Measure of the World] is a work in GIF format whose starting point is the book The Book of the Path and Virtue, a collection of Chinese proverbs belonging to a collective oral tradition that deal with the tao, that is, about a certain ultimate reality of the universe.

In the work, Battistelli superimposes images in which we see the movement of light in the same scene, captured by “lo-fi” images,  and we are led to a deep reflection on what it is possible to perceive and about how the world is in constant transformation before our very eyes.
