About the Artwork
Two-dimensional planes are projected in this world as material and raised in three dimensions. They turn into a hypothetical place which, filtered by virtual technology, acquires a new identity. Architecture becomes an immutable setting which allows me to stage other personal inclinations: romanticism, modernity, nature, construction, feminism.
