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.
The work is designed, analyzed, tested and created to meet the criteria of reproducibility and seriality. An “Art-Design” that blends the design and production processes of fashion and design and takes over the world of art, irreversibly revolutionizing it.
The equation is: as the artist varies, the result of the work does not change.
2 busts, 2 bodies that look at each other, identical in shape, different in the image.
2 paper photoscultures, one has a texture in black and white the other in color.
2 photographic close-ups on the contemporary human being, which are reflected in each other in a temporal succession between past and present.
It is an engineering of the body, an organic architecture on which to build infinite stories.
Two apparently unique sculptures, but it is in its relationship with space that Mosaic 360 ° develops its characteristics as a work of art, while in its technical reproducibility, on the other hand, it justifies its values as an object.
It is an object that seeks its aura and that plays with the perceptive processes of the human eye and with the observer’s relationship of proximity and distance.
From 3d to 2d and vice versa.

Self-supporting sculpture, hollow, a succession of colored rhomboid tesserae similar to mosaic, the perceptual result of the color sequence forms an image in the human eye, which in this case is the bust of a human being.
In Mosaic 360 ° the boundary between man and machine is not definable, both collaborate to a final result, and the use of technology is essential for the creation of this project, otherwise it would be impossible.
