Culture and civilization arise from dialectical vision, exchanges, relationships and evolutionary processes. The flow of history has brought together civilizations and peoples, marking their evolution through the encounter and contamination of different traditions, religions, and cultures that have been enriched and transformed into something else through interaction and mutual comparison. Starting from this vision, emulsified papers were folded to make spirals like DNA structures, then painted in the darkroom through random superimpositions of chemicals. They were then unfolded to create another form that carried the marks of the original structure. Through the folds of the spiral, the action of chemical agents has given life to a kaleidoscopic succession of anthropomorphic, primitive, and alien faces, in a dreamlike and ancestral dimension composed of ever new elements, often completely symmetrical, sometimes the negative of each other, but always born from the contact and interaction of two flaps.

La cultura e la civiltà nascono dalla visione dialettica, dagli scambi, le relazioni e processi evolutivi. Il flusso della storia ha messo a contatto civiltà e popoli segnando la loro evoluzione attraverso l'incontro e la contaminazione tra tradizioni, religioni e culture differenti che si sono arricchite e trasformate in altro, attraverso l'interazione e il confronto reciproco. Partendo da questa visione, sono state piegate delle carte emulsionate realizzando spirali come strutture di DNA, poi dipinte in camera oscura attraverso sovrapposizioni casuali di sostanze chimiche. Successivamente sono state dispiegate creando una forma altra che portasse con se i segni della struttura di partenza. Attraverso le pieghe della spirale, l’azione dei chimici ha dato vita a una caleidoscopica successione di volti antropomorfi, primitivi e alieni, in una dimensione onirica e ancestrale composta da elementi sempre nuovi, spesso completamente simmetrici, a volte l’uno il negativo dell’altro, ma nati sempre dal contatto e l'interazione di due lembi.
