Special cures for uncurable anesthetized lovers – is a multimedia project started by lorenzo ciciani in late 2006. Born as an experimental web platform for the publication of multidisciplinary projects, as results of personal works and collaborations, it then moved on the physical plane, first with the activity of vjing, then by proposing multimedia performances and installations. The aesthetic research focuses on the permeation of different media categories, synthesized through digital processing, emphasizing the distortions and discontinuities that occur between them. Scual was one of the initiatives that have created the network of artistic research, stochastic resonance.
