Descrizione Opera / Biografia
My work is a definite view of the human body in the future, if some kind of a catastrophe occurs in our environment, bringing global unpredictable changes. I am considering a situation of a possible future when humans won’t be part of the metaverse or part of machines, but become part of nature. A global reassembly of the collective human body could make it part of the landscape with no other biological species left – only an indiscrete living matter.
The video that I made in one of The National Parks of Southern California – the area that was nearly destroyed by wildfires in 2018. Amazingly, one of the trees was burned on the outside, but completely remained alive inside. Some fragments of the burnt bark crumbled, and I filled those holes with computer-generated breathing
moving flesh. The wildfire in my work is a metaphor of a strong uncontrolled process of destruction and change, and at the same time – emergence of something new.
The sound art was created by a composer Dario Duarte from Argentina, he combined natural and electronic sounds.
