My research focuses on the phenomenology of rapresenting landscapes modified by human intervention with particular attention to architecture. It is a path that develops on multiple levels, determining as many reading levels. What ensues is a collage on the post-human condition that winds through a reflection on artificial places. All references and quotations are manifold and they range from the drawings of Antonio Sant’Elia to the scenography of Blade Runner, from virtual environments of video games to the urban hypertrophy of Dubai and Abu Dhabi through the cyberpunk notes of the novels by William Gibson and Philip K Dick and for the post-apocalyptic future of Mad Max.
The fil rouge is fascination towards the immanence of objects and the progressive loss of identity of the individual, which are here imbued with a feeling halfway between amused nihilism and a condition of depersonalization. This research comes through by means of the creation of series of images in which photography and digital techniques alternate. It is not a random choice. We live in a period in which the variety of languages has ended up merging into a single grammar capable of accommodating each expressive facet. Contemporary individuals live lives in which what is defined as virtual is so strictly intertwined with the physical dimension that determining precise boundaries is almost impossible.
