E.N. quasi-bridge is based on a structure that is physically and conceptually modular. Formally based on the succession and repetition of a simple shape, the work is conceptually a collage of different cultural references. The result has an awkward balance between functionality with references to civil engineering and industrial design and aesthetic with an eye to minimalist constructions. Cascio pushes forward the idea of a nouveau-esprit-nouveau as the exaltation of the dualism between freedom of creativity and its dependency on the past. The installation is structurally reminiscent of a construction in between a bridge, a minimal sculpture, a more figurative idea of scaffolding or an architectural model, while its raw wood alludes indirectly to a more rural environment, connection with the texts of Thoreau and Morris.
