(2010 - in progress)
I work on the beach, gathering discarded objects that I find nearby, I place them in the sand and wait for them to get in touch with the sea, recording the results of the interaction between this two elements with photography.
By altering the order in which these elements are placed, the objects and the landscape are transformed, acquiring a new meaning, in the same way that you can alter the meaning of a sentence by modifying its syntax. Something I interpret as a manifestation of the fact that the beach is a space in which everything becomes ephemeral.
“Nature in cities is nothing more than a “Souvenir”, only the memories or the idea of places where there are no humans around or areas that are not under our control .
In a city, nature is no longer in command, and whether it wishes to continue to exist must accept its place, obey our rules, and remain under control. Its existence has been conditioned to fit within the definition of the words “Park”, “Garden”, “Forest” and all that these terms imply.
It must occupy only the sites that have been designated, accept the meaning and the concepts of these spaces, and additionally, be subdued to our care.”
