EMOTIONAL MAPS

2015 – 2016

The project was born while attending the Multimedia Lab by Adrian Paci (2015), then developed during the Art Lab by Liliana Moro (2016). I attended both as a Multimedia Arts Undergraduate student at the IUAV University of Venice.

My “Emotional Maps” serie wants to bring out feelings and memories which are usually locked in our minds. Things that other people can’t notice, but have a strong influence on us.

I’ve started to stress a recurring theme in my head and in my work: the contrast between what we think and what we say, appearance versus inner thoughts. 

So I’ve selected the most important photos for me to­gether with some geographical maps of significant places. I retraced everything on contact paper by ink, connecting the lines of the various images.

In the following months I’ve decided to ask the same to other people, to create their personal and unique emotional maps.

For the final exhibition I’ve hang them up like true maps, materializing something that’s usually inner and just emotional.
