Both artworks, even if conceived  on different media s and aiming at distinct purposes, has been developed on a parallel path and are both based upon an omnivor collection of images catched day by day from 2004 until present.

Artist book collects 120 snapshots, whose sequence wants to suggest a branch point of different meanings and reflections. Artist’s view ranged on extremely wide spread of different contexts and scenarios.

Video work collects notes and images in a more chaotic mood, even if the well balanced through the original sountrack. The video shows various locations: Amsterdam, New York, Tanzania, as well as italian locations such as Bagnacavallo, Rome and Plaermo. Humans is a kind of work diary, that  quickly turns into a mantra composed by many slices of life that compose a sort of language.
