Ossimori is a project in progress, an endless archive that relates heterogeneous and natural elements. On the one hand there is the eternal part, on the other the ephemeral part, the plants. The elements are exhibited by the end of their lifecycle; stones come from stones production scraps, plants have undergone a dehydration process up to become permanent. Observation and research work aims to fuse the two elements getting new visual balances which get over the opposite characteristics of vegetable and mineral kingdoms.
