Its uphill/downhill from here – The movie

Downhill:uphill

Downhill/uphill

For Gianni’s 50th birthday I’ve created a painted plywood kinetic illustration, dealing with the ambiguous tricky meaning of the phrase:’Its uphill/downhill from here’.
The phrase was produced as a birthday well wishing and left the person addressed puzzled and perplexed. The idea is, that it may be an uphill struggle when we are young and fit, but once we’ve reached the summit, “…in mezzo del cammin della nostra vita“(Dante) we can enjoy the descent, no longer having to struggle uphill, enjoying the magic of mother gravity.
