photograph on aluminium, abraded, cm 90x60 


The German physicist Heisenberg is often remembered for the “uncertainty principle”, according to which it is impossible to measure exactly the position and velocity of a particle at a given time without incurring in uncertainty. A phenomenon that encroaches on our world and is responsible for important issues, not only physical, but also social ones, in everyone’s life. A disconcerting aspect of the uncertainty principle is that the very act of observing changes the objects observed. As an object, landscape, too, is subject to this change, and in the series of photographs here presented, is the result of an action performed on the image of a landscape. After taking a picture of a place and printing it on aluminium, I went back to the same place to alter the photograph, abrading it against the landscape itself, creating a visual and conceptual short circuit.
