The exhibition "cortex" is presenting a selection of four works of Studio produced over the last year. The timing of this crop that is, moreover, just a picture perception originating, witness a combat condition and exhaustion with the design discipline, and therefore, order exercises, symmetry and limit.
For the project, the design never turned away from the body of human knowledge. Always transformed, adapted to lull and scarcity. By instinct, our biological machine transforms physical information of light stimuli in visual cortex, While the drawing is an imposing action of reason, a conscious muscle training. By drawing took us from space, modify and keep control structures. With him, We can flatten part time and dominate the instinct.
The impossibility to present the finished work (not the object, but the composition) contrasts with the slow production of these works, being a real resistance to idolatry of historically accumulated forms, be of aestheticism or the social formalism. Art is made by and for humans, so is condition sine qua non express the physical state, conceptual and mystic who produces. That's what you'll see in this show, that is, the resulting composition of choices, of algorithms and of faith.

Discusses the design in your whole, with emphasis on the construction of drawing algorithms and concepts of natural geometry. Study carefully the origin and construction imagery in our society, Luke Evangelist to indigenous codices.

“So being a good collection can be almost a work of art, and the creative process of conducting, call indelibly the artist and collector. All collections are different, because they derive from the person who makes, the copyright and trademark of your individuality collection.
For collectors, the things you collect have a special meaning and are indeed a captivating and powerful force.
Obviously also, the collection tends to reflect certain aspects of the personality of the collector, the your like, the your sophistication, the independence of your choice or confidence in the judgment of others. The collection reflects a model of the world done as to who performs, You can even be a way to fix, to establish a new order, perpetuating a life, or to give a sense of time.
The Act of collecting becomes a purpose, an objective, a reason to live, all the more reason that also serves to perfect one that started. This exciting nature of the creative process that is connected to the collecting, It is reported by several collectors, to associate the Act of investigate and search this poetic tone and even romantic , contributing to your pleasure and happiness. Often the acquisition process itself is a source of great enthusiasm, and the achievement of the desired object can acquire contours of obsession, This is undoubtedly the great asset auctions .
The art world doesn't exist without artists, but we can also ask ourselves what would happen to the world if there were no collectors? Without collectors all the ecology of art as we know it failed. Are they the large consumers that keep the whole system running.”
