Waves of Wanting – Art on a wall

If you ask directions to this piece of street art no one will be able to tell you where it is by the name of the tiny little square that hosts it: piazzetta Andrea Viglongo is a name that for many people in Turin simply will not sound familiar. But if you ask for the amazing stripes of metal on the side of a building, I bet many will give you the right directions to see it live.

The artwork’s name is “Waves of Wanting” and it was built in 2001 by the American artist Dwyer Nancy: it was part of the complete renovation of the neighborhood, the so-called “Quadrilatero Romano”.

The artwork is amazing to watch every day, but you have to go there on sunny days, maybe at noon, to get the best of it. When the sun rays hit the six metal sheets, the word “more”, written in 5 languages, is projected on the wall of the building.
