From 2013 Marco Signorini has been working on the potential power of digital technology, driving his research into the fertile land of a new reality that performs the universe we inhabit. His method, tranfert from the computer, considers the digital as a constitutive part of the image. As in the combining game of the anagram, the algorithm of the selected application creates an original photography. In this way an ongoing transformation is true, and it could be verified just in the moment of the choice, the real digital event.
The image that could now be generated, not only is the mirror of the strong indetermined logic of quantum theory, but also it abandons more and more the figurative perception of the reality in order to correspond to a world no more made of facts, but built on things. Itʼs in the cellular nature of which we are made of, that Signorini finds the human and conoscitive power of photography, that he himself defines as “the memory, personal or collective, of a world made by image”. Turning back to the algorithm study, as a minimum chain of elaboration that may be opened to a never-ending number of variables, the artist works changing the sequence either of the pixel or of the images, giving the software the chance to become “a place, an image, a presence”. Itʼs the algorithm itself, into a visual confusion, that characterizes the image as an open source, since anyone can look and reflect on that and thanks to that.
Just in this magmatic world of information that we daily inhabit, we can actively become part of the generation of a new kind of image, not narrative for her nature but with the aim of compose more different sources together.
