La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

Maps are highly abstract plan views of the Earth from space. It is to emphasize that mountain ranges, forests, oceans, lakes,settlements and roads on maps and in the view of the Earth from space are quite recognizable. Though, the boundaries of territories and provinces are not to be seen from space. Boundaries are artificial boundaries that exist actually only on paper or digital screens. From space, we see no limits, unless there are rivers or mountain ranges, some of which form natural borders. These thoughts flow into my work – which treats the topic of „organisms with contact lines“ that are the source of political conflicts.
