In the context of contemporary artistic reappraisals of Futurism, the artist Luca Buvoli represents an interesting case study. In his retrospective journey across Futurism the artist attempts to cast a contemporary view on a past modernist movement. Buvoli's work explores Futurism through the medium of art rather than deploying traditional forms of investigation. Buvoli's preoccupation with time and slowness also pervades the video Velocity Zero in which the process of 'deceleration' is already perceivable in the oxymoron that constitutes the title. In Meta-Futurism the reskilling process that the artist claimed to have undertaken also coincided with the extensive use of digital animation although always mixed and superimposed by Buvoli's own drawings and hand-sketched material. Meta-Futurism proposes a comprehensive investigation of Futurist aesthetics, succeeding where reception and traditional forms of analysis have often proved insufficient.
