This is a personal biographical and at the same time collective experience, investigated through the use of “signifying” materials that speak of the surface and narcissism, the rituals and outward appearances fed by the ego. Nature and artifice are contradictory elements, subject and reflection that are continually exchanged; an ambiguous and symbolic situation sensitive to variations in light that determine the colouring in a chaos into which order is
introduced by scientific elements.
