The Aspiranti Aspiratori exist both on paper and in Casting, the animated video created by the artist in collaboration with the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna, which tells the story of their genesis and evolution. The title refers to the ambitions of the Aspiranti Aspiratori to one day become genuine air purifiers, and to the possibility that through the public’s voting, one of them might manage to realise this dream. In the end, by applying the theory of evolution to these machines, Sissi chose and created three of the ten Aspiranti Aspiratori. The results of the delicate cross-fertilization process and exchange of ideas between artist and company were presented at an exhibition set up in Milan during the Fuori Salone 2012. An art book published by Corraini recounts all the phases of the project, documenting the new format adopted by the company after meeting Sissi: a body which hosts and feels, or rather an Organindustria.
