The project, a series of 8 pieces (plus three), consists in the reproduction and physical modification of a linear polymer of actin, a globular protein present in large quantities in our body.
This linear polymer will be the result of a return to the shapeless and chaotic matter of an idea that has the body, imperfect and processual, as a model. The protein, transformed into a 3D model through a regular pattern, returns to be organic matter through 3D printing, to violently undergo processes of change, which demonstrate the precarious and fickle nature of things.


It is a process of incarnation of technological matter and an analysis on the biological fetish, intended not as a pleasant oxymoron, but as the testimony of a society prone to the spasmodic preservation of physicality for physicality.

The chain will consist of 8 pieces that can be assembled and disassembled. The last three pieces, supported by a pedestal, are water-soluble, taking the concept of decay and precariousness to the extreme.

These objects, conceived as modern Cargo Cult, are landing devices for transcended minds, simulacra of matter, techno-bio-living fetishes.
