The Body as Dream series
is based on the certainty
that our reality exists
because we’ve given it a name,
that our representation of the world
is as important
as its existence a priori
and that we,
along with the world we’re a part of,
are defined by our words.
is a continual repetition of words
which form an entirety
of illegible signs
that envelop the skin,
cover and replace it.
Light or ponderous, winking or solemn,
all of these images represent
the same curious astonishment
at what we are.
— Marco Ambrosi and Monica Dengo
