Dérives

Dérives

Space can be conceived as a great psyche in which to wander, moved by an eternal question: is the psyche inside us or are we in the psyche? My answer consists in abandoning myself to a situationist dérive, where there is no distinction between the inner and outer landscape. I call these photographic Dérives is also the name of these photographic series. In these practice the psychogeographic exploration of space merges with elements of a more private storytelling. The primary action, however, is to wander, to train one's perception and awareness of one's  body through spaces with a work of soulmaking as spontaneous ritual. The rules of the game are: get lost physically and mentally in the space, leave behind any intellectual masturbation, accept the invitation to walk through the mirror, be open to unexpected encounters, indulge to nomadic wander, strongly believe in synchronicity and metaphors. I hope that thes projects can contribute to a new depth psychology, capable of searching for depth outside of man, in the objects of the world. In this case photography is poetry and not prose, uses reality and goes beyond it: every project a performance happening in the space. We all dance on the edge between form an formless.
