As the concept of Death accompanies the course of our individual life, that of the End of the World has always been present in the cultural evolution of organized society.
It has been prophesied, imagined and represented in a multitude of ways; from biblical cataclysms, passing through the apocalyptic visions of the Middle Ages up to modern Hollywood interpretations, which in a riot of impending threats such as meteorites, viruses, atomic disasters, etc. they spared us nothing.
But, apparently harmless, there may be something new; or rather, not a novelty as such, but never before produced in such quantities. Not earthquakes, mutant viruses, biological weapons or crazed robots; human civilization could become extinct for quite another thing. In fact, for a long time now the planet has been plagued with Meaningless Words and the Void Word is a highly polluting waste, other than radioactive waste. The Void Word feeds Void Thought which in turn generates more Void Word and so on in a perverse self-feeding spiral.
What if all this accumulation generates a gigantic flood wave, a flood? But the real question is: can we swim? - Fulvio Tomasi, June 13, 2001

As almost always happens in Tomasi's works, even in the one presented on this occasion the sensation of beginning is of a fantastic atmosphere, in which single presences, faces, masks and other objects come together unexpectedly, in a whirlwind that justifies the title of the work. The texture of signs, often obtained with eight points, creates an extraordinarily effective chiaroscuro effect. - Marco Tabusso, extracted from the catalog of the 5th European Biennial for Engraving, 2001
