In my practice the experience of space translates into the comparison between reality and its image, the last one understood more as metaphor than simulacra; the sense of size, recognisability, and belonging are part of the phenomena that I investigate through the interpretation and rendition of places generated by human beings and in which we live.
Being an architect allowed me to explore the double nature of the concept of space: on one hand it being a concrete and tangible phenomenon, on the other it being the array of perceptions that define and shape the relationship between the person and his/her context.
In the last years I felt the need to intersect the evocative potential of photography with the practice of mock-up making which shows similar characteristics. The freedom experienced in representing a space demonstrates that reality itself is a flexible concept.
