Why does the world seem scarier and scarier? For some years now the entertainment industry seems to have moved from an original narrative of contrast and prevention at the end of the world (Terminator, 1984) towards an approach more linked to the concept of coexistence with the inevitable, survivalist (The Last of Us, 2023), with a flavor always tending towards the dystopian. This is just a small example of how fear has become an integral part of our perception of the current and future world and cannot be entirely linked to ecological and environmental issues. If, in fact, the political compass of the West has inexorably shifted to the right, this is probably caused by the pervasiveness of violent and frightening content in social media. The infosphere, increasingly suffocating and schizophrenic, now requires journalists and publishers to communicate facts with increasingly shorter and clickbait headlines, aimed at striking our all too volatile attention in a lightning-fast manner. The European and American far right has proven to be all too skilled in taking advantage of our constant sense of bewilderment, in the sensation of feeling in danger everywhere.

It is precisely to describe my perception of the world, distorted by a thousand fears and intrusive thoughts, that I collect, select, and create frightening, disturbing, or simply incomprehensible objects and images. In this context, I make use of multiple heterogeneous techniques and materials that, forced to coexist, take on shapes similar to parasitic organisms, pieces of decaying flesh, or tumor growths. 3D printing, Artificial Intelligence, and digital illustration are techniques that by definition enhance technology, but which in juxtaposition with pencil drawing and Hydro-Dipping printing, take on a disturbing but defused dimension.
