The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
The mosaic that becomes a pixel, the pixel that becomes a photograph, a photograph that becomes a sculpture.
Mosaic 360 ° is the contemporary human being, aware of his body, aware of his role; an aesthetic human being, narcissus, to follow and share.
Mosaic 360 ° is a 360 degree view of who we are and who we were, they are paper and pvc “photoscultures”, a modern mosaic.
Two identical, mirrored photoscultures, one in black and white and the other in color. The past and the present confronting each other in an intimate look.
Attracted by the beauty of fabric construction and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representation of the image curious and innovative.
I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending, and I have identified in the system of weaving an alternate way to construct three-dimensional shapes. The idea is not to create three-dimensional objects based on body shape, but turning a two-dimensional surface like paper or canvas, 3D object adapted to body shapes. I have been using these two-dimensional surfaces as pictorial space and through an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colorful sculpture of paper or canvas intertwined. Are portraits. Are people. Anonymous identities. It is an abnormality of mind. Portraits are a 360° of contemporary people.

A personal vision of what piqued my feelings in the first 6 weeks of residence in Beijing. Through the use of stereotypical images and universally recognizable I drew a line between decoration and human aesthetics. A pictorial decoration that takes a module of “Temple of Heaven” in Beijing, a traditional porcelain of the Ming Dynasty, a portrait of a Chinese woman by the hair color unequivocally blacks, these are the subjects that make up the new work “Made in China” . Mine is an aesthetic and a synthesis operation that uses the shape of the human face to tell the worlds, places and ways of being human. A meeting between textures and colors, which shall presume to tell a continent, China, through an aesthetic vision. Despite the modernity and progress that has subjected this nation, uses and customs, traditions and the past live in harmony with the contemporary.
在北京居住的前 6 周内激起了我的感情的个人愿景。 通过使用刻板印象和普遍可识别的图像，我在装饰和人类美学之间划出了一条界限。 以北京“天坛”为模块的图画装饰、明代传统瓷器、中国女性发色鲜明的黑色肖像，这些都是构成新作《中国制造》的主题。 中国” 。 Mine 是一种美学和综合操作，它使用人脸的形状来讲述人类的世界、地点和方式。 质感与色彩的交汇，以审美的眼光，诉说着中国大陆。 尽管现代性和进步使这个国家受到影响，但用途和习俗、传统和过去与当代和谐相处。
遵循这种过去与未来之间的平衡，我利用中国传统美学的陈词滥调来重新改编一个更现代的故事，这个故事与人类通过装饰、绘画或自己的身体创造美的能力有关。 使用我工作了几年的成熟的纸交织技术，我发现了这个世界的这一部分完全相似，我创造了这个我特意称之为中国制造的新作品，因为它是在中国构思的，创造的 并想表明，中国不仅仅是世界工厂，更是我们常常忘记存在的特殊审美的发源地，我们应该给西方世界更多的空间和认可。
The human love!
