2020 - 2021
I grew up with images of Borgs. Human machines determined to reconfigure what being human really means. These days I feel like I am becoming a cyborg myself. Starting from Donna Haraway's reflections, this project aims to question the loss of boundaries and dialectics in the postmodern society. Focusing not on the blurriness between traditional dichotomies but on the new reality that comes out of it. A world without time, without gender, without future. The images included in this project are a chaotic mixture between fiction and science, archive and experiments. Some created in the darkroom through alternative processes (chemigrams, cyanotypes), others taken from historical medical books from the 19th century and then experimentally corrupted. Altogether, they aim to question our age of confusion, of failure of notions of truth and loss of faith in the future. Reshaping the past to comment on the future, this sci-fi series comments on the era of hyperreality, rethinking notions of motherhood in the technological age. Indigo Dust is a project in the form of a sci-fi photography book where images and text are both result of a collaboration between human and machine. Reconsidering the value of the AI in shaping human creativity.
