Out of The Black. 2017
The project propose a sintesis regarding the contemporary society, the post-industrialized society, a look at the blending of natural with artificial. They are two things that cannot go and work together by their nature but the modern, industrialized, civilization has pushed the limits so the natural can no longer exists but as a substitute of the technology. These ideas have been already postulated by Heideger, Alvin Toeffler and Marshall McLuhan. They have put the problem down and sent a warning regarding the consequences of this natural -industrial ,,algorithm”.
"Q-01" is part of a more broadly dichotomous visual approach, by questioning geometric expressiveness or inexpressiveness and associative or dissociative forms.
Wall of Mirrors. 2016
Without making a political stand, I want to offer a world with no borders, no customs, to others as well. Thru an artistically gesture wrapped in a live performance, I want to open the windows of the minds, of mentally and spiritually freedom. What happens when you look in a mirror: you cross a border were you see yourself as you know yourself, and get beyond, and when someone, a known or unknown friend draws you a spiritual path of art and knowledge, the journey is more beautiful. Borders are not just something physical, drawn by a legal authority, the border is also when you can not overcome your condition.
