Entry Description

The project "antimatter” tries to describe an ancient problem: today almost the entire matter and the forces moving the universe aren’t readable. This invisible mass is foreseen by the science by elimination, that is investigating the perceptible. It appears as an endless spider web sustaining the visible and extending across all the space. It’s obvious that a problem of this magnitude has had consequences of existential and philosophical nature, as well as scientific. My reaction to the problem is to imagine visions that recall shapes of antimatter invisible to us. I think that the final result also emulates primordial shapes existing in nature, reflecting inner conditions as well as universal. These are similar structures in many other observable dimensions. However, my research don’t want to go near to traditional and cosmogonic expressions, but to drawings able to instill the mysterious effect that antimatter and dark energy exert over ordinary matter.
