“Polymorphism is the state of being made of many different elements, forms, kinds or individuals. In biology it refers to the occurrence of different forms, stages or types in individual organisms or in organisms of the same species.” (Michael Hensel)
“Polymorphic System Studies” is a series of 12 photorealistic 3d studies that aims to explore and visualize polymorphic synth-organisms / bio-tools / bio-machines. The project expand and enhance the image series I produced around the ideas of plastic surgery and artificial beauty, for Viewpoint magazine. A special thanks to Metropolitan Publishing BV / Amsterdam, Bianca Wendt Studio / London.
The edition is of 3+1 A.P. (2 38×57 cm – 1 56×84 cm). All the artworks are printed using pigment-based inks on archival paper.

“Per polimorfismo si intende lo stato di essere composto di differenti elementi, forme, specie o individui. In biologia indica la presenza di differenti forme, fasi o modalità di sviluppo in singoli organismi o in organismi della stessa specie.” (Michael Hensel)
“Polymorphic System Studies” è una serie di 12 studi dedicati alla esplorazione / visualizzazione di sint-organismi / bio-dispositivi / bio-macchine. Il progetto prende il via – sviluppandoli ed espandendoli – da una serie di lavori prodotti per Viewpoint magazine intorno ai concetti di chirurgia plastica e bellezza artificiale: un ringraziamento alla Metropolitan Publishing BV di Amsterdam e allo Studio Bianca Wendt di Londra.
Le opere – stampe ai pigmenti su carte di qualità archival – sono prodotte in edizione di 3+1 p.d.a. (2 38×57 cm – 1 56×84 cm).
