FROM THE BOOK
"The increasing overlap between the real and the imaginary--which is the focus of my research--
has required an arrangement of the work that aims to suggest a metamorphosis of reality and favor an exercise of free imagination open to a variety of assumptions and alternatives.
I have then pushed myself to the limit, creating a situation of deconstruction of reality even through the use of blurred images, which I have shot freehand. In this way, I have intended
to recall the destabilization of traditional cognitive processes and, generally speaking, the situation of fragmentation and transience typical of our society and culture.
"In the open narrative structure, I have recreated a 'space fantasy' that sometimes freely refers to the science-fiction genre, offering a continuous alternation of the images of Heaven and Earth to create a yo-yo sight and thought in an atmosphere of disruptive alienation.
"I have portrayed humans as androids. A task that is not impossible in our overcrowded metropolises (New York, London, and Milan are among the cities that I have preferred), where people are familiar strangers due to the more and more inhuman rhythm of life and the increasing decline of affection."
