It is a project based on the matter shaping by itself, on the eternal mutation, connection and linkage with the Whole. I folded emulsified paper realizing spirals to symbolize the DNA structure. Then I painted them in darkroom through uncontrolled chemical processes. Subsequently I unfolded them creating another form that would bring with itself the signs (fold marks) of the starting form. Through the spiral folds, that chemicals action gave birth to a dreamlike and ancestral dimension, a kaleidoscope of antropomorphic faces, primeval and aliens, of dancing sending back to the each of us most intimate part. The individual cells arise from a common and single element, the spiral’s one, the DNA’s, in turn discomposed and divided by paper’s fold marks, arrange elements, often completly symmetrical, sometimes each other’s negative.

 

È un progetto sulla materia che prende forma da sé, sull’eterno mutamento, sulla connessione e il legame con il Tutto. Ho piegato delle carte emulsionate realizzando delle spirali a simboleggiare la struttura del DNA, poi le ho dipinte in camera oscura attraverso procedimenti chimici non controllati. Successivamente le ho dispiegate creando una forma altra che portasse con se i segni (le pieghe) della forma di partenza. Attraverso le pieghe della spirale, l’azione dei chimici ha dato vita a una dimensione onirica e ancestrale, un caleidoscopio di volti antropomorfi, primitivi e alieni, di esoscheletri, di danze che rimandano al repertorio più intimo di ciascuno di noi. Le singole celle nascono da un elemento comune e unico, quello della spirale, del DNA, a loro volta scomposte e divise dalle pieghe della carta, compongono elementi spesso completamente simmetrici, a volte l’uno il negativo dell’altro.
