- Here are some projects I had in the university. They represent books that I've illustrated, installations and other projects.
This project studies the impact of the human activities on the world. It all started from satelite landscapes which represent territories used by humans to produce resources. These seemed to contain precious information which needed to be discovered, so, as archaeologists proceed with artifacts, I "digged" these images, "cleaned" and displayed them to be admired for their beauty and importance. These "artifacts" led me to other discoveries that made me understand how huge is the impact of our activity, but also how important are the changes in technology that worsened the effects are. We are well aware of our actions, and we are improving our ways, but we can't be unnoticeable. The notion of "evil" is something that only humans know, but probably it dosen't really exist, because what we would call bad in nature is in fact a good thing. Like nature, humans are destructive, but also creative and all the information I discovered is illustrated in a book that you could find next to the copper-plate engravings.
This is an installation with the title "Family portrait" and it refers to the peculiar tradition of the wealthy families. The resulting photos were sobre, every family member having a forced smile and a predetermined place in the picture. Therefore these pictures were ment to represent the family and it was an important event, but in the end all looked the same and the process was somehow cruel.
This is a unique book I created for "Invisible cities" by Italo Calvino. I used motherboard pcbs for covers, bound with IDE cables, the illustrations are linocuts and the text represents words from the original text, used as descriptions for electronic schemes.
