" I corpi si cercano in assoluto silenzio, riaffiorando da ricordi in nero, sguardi da un oblio di piacere , identità che si frantumano e ricompongono in ricami di viola e blu, persi. "

Biography

Research

My main subject is finding out what really matters to us. I look at the rate at which artificiality takes over us and we become more like the materials that surround us in an urban context, materials like plastic. In an era of progression we start losing what truly makes us human, in a sense we become dehumanized tending to forget the values which are essential for humanity. At the end we adopt a more psychopathic way of living without any empathy whatsoever for the people that surround us, using them just as disposable pieces to satisfy our own selfish pleasures. The fact remains that the more advanced the place you live in is, the more likely you are to become less and less human.
