LAST PREFIX / LAST PRAEPOSITIONIS
This ongoing visual study about the human condition, in memorial of "Neohominidae", re-evaluates how the development traces and material regeneration of living matter behave within a physical character´s algorithm of existence. Now with “O Último Prefixo”, a sequence of eschatological thoughts is released, among which the human being is redefined with its behavior as part of an infamous survival chain.
Included under the process of silhouette patterning, the body is extended in a reciprocal relationship of harmonic parasitism. That being said, the materials are developed with bacterial cultures and botanical ecosystems. And these same communities exemplify the volatile present within different stages of life. Therefore, showing a consistent transfiguration and appropriation of consume/d/rs organisms, it remembers a metaphysical dialogue of an interdependent web.
