“How many places can an image live?
A place is a codified time-space block, a shell through which information and images transit.
It is a process of re-invention of places acting: ruins and fragments of old images are inhabited by an external information which gives them new life.
Images re-live within places while places are changed by images. That is how objects, spaces and buildings rooted within common images, become the physical place where the information exchange is allowed.
We study known and empathic fragments of reality with an installation-attitude to test how the images we make change the places where they are.”
