When I started working with motherboard pictures my intention was to transform them into something abstract and obtain traces, signs that could be interpreted as a language. The process I initially applied was based on removing what I thought was unnecessary, trying to obtain the marks and fragments that would become part of the "written language" mentioned above. I did something similar with the projects titled "Big Bang".
Experimenting, I realized that, instead of removing elements from those images, I could do the opposite and thus make them richer in terms of colors and shapes. That's why I began playing with hues and Photoshop layers, discovering that those masses of printed circuits, connectors and processors could lose their structured, mechanical perfection and become something comparable to biological formations.
The final result consists of different high-res images (6000px wide or tall), created for large format printing, which might recall satellite pictures of landscapes or highly populated areas, when viewed in the form of thumbnails. Observed in their original dimensions, what they offer is the immersion in another world invaded by rivers and canals, covered with fields, hills, lakes and, in a few pictures, industrial structures, aged buildings, labyrinthine roads and pathways, denouncing high human presence.
