Statement: My visual art always has the function, for me, of leading to the surface visual symbols, so that anguishes (such as fear of death, of indifference, of war and of disease as well as human injustices), instead of tracing back to the dimension of the self, transpose themselves consciously or unconsciously in the dimension of the collective self. Actually I transformed “multibeam technology” (beams of acoustic waves which infer the depth of the ocean floor and “draw” its morphology) into a new form of artistic communication. The desire of man to see beyond goes back to the beginning of mankind. Modern science satisfies the need to create visual images of things that are normally concealed.
I pick up the alterations that a new medium provokes in mankind and leads the way to a new sensorial interpretation, creating radically new worlds and extending our visual potential (which tends to embrace both the real and the imaginary realms) to explore the spellbinding traces of the origin of life.
