My Modus Operandi embraces my passions for electronic, music, science and graphic design.
I like to define myself as a multimedia artist, and my art works as playthings. As with childhood toys, art objects can be seen as many distorted mirrors of the Everyday, a caricature of the real. This sometimes does not need to be pleasant-looking or easy to use but has to possess, above all, a high degree of play value, which is what defines the capacity of a Toy/ Artifact to stimulate and engage the viewer. This moves the attention of the spectator in places they probably know, but they have forgotten, unconscious against rational and vice-versa.
With the Technological Mandala series I combined the suggestive and spiritual meaning of the Indian Mandalas with something that has been perceived as far from that sphere of influence, technology.
The search of perfection as necessity within the electronics industry has stimulated my curiosity to produce this series of pieces in order to evocate that specific need.
I wanted to show what has been hidden from the eyes of the consumer, representing electronic circuits as extraordinary objects where the perfection of the design can become almost something ethereal.
The shapes and colors of the single components intrigued me for pure aesthetic reasons with the consequent loss of the actual functionality of the component itself. My circuits/ Mandalas do not activate lights or do other complicated function, but they simply function as stimulus to produce simple questions like: what will happen if a real electric current flows through the Circuit/ Mandala?
