About the work in residency
The word 'pneuma' has taken different meanings over time, it evolved through history. Originally linked to the concept of vital breath and literally translated with 'composed by air'. Today the term refers to a mechanical principle, in between the invisible action and its phenomenal manifestation. A principle that manifests itself as a pulsation or a vibration to which all the elements of the universe agree. A perpetual motion whose structure repeats itself to infinity and within which mutations occur. The fascination emerges from the dialogue between body-space-technology, whose common denominator is the constant change, the cyclicality in small and large scale, the matter and its invisible component.
