Digital collages
2019












Series of digital interventions in found imagery of sculptures from different historical periods.

The original images are scanned and repurposed with algorithmic tools which, by eliminating areas, synthesize new visual content by interpreting and copying nearby areas.
The results are arbitrary, by the algorithm’s will, and each intervention has different outputs, never the same.

Taking sculpture and rock, that material that encapsulates time, as a metaphor for reality, these new sculptures propose reflection about erosion. In the current post-truth world, the digital settles down in matter.

The series is thought as a collectable.








“Nada muda de forma como as nuvens, a nao ser os rochedos”
—Victor Hugo

Part of the series was exhibited at Festival A Porta,
@Casa Plástica, Leiria (PT) 2019.
