Time does not exist; there is only the relationship between variables. The artist began to investigate the depths of time, looking for a form that could express its contemporary meaning, with a plurality of content but only one absolute term. In this search he found answers in the world of video art, and in particular digital art, managing to show us in a unique way, with the universal language of images, the current meaning of time. The time of each object can be defined as a closed circle, a loop, and the only thing that remains possible is to describe how the times of each entity intersect when they meet. The Infinity project investigates this path and seeks to use visual art, video art in particular, to show us, as only art and artists can, what our eyes cannot see. Our lives are made up of movements and actions, sometimes imperceptible and sometimes striking, and our time is filled with these actions. Human Evolution is part of this journey and shows us a constant eternal human evolution toward an unknown future but always traversing a world divided between new and old, right and wrong, good and evil.
