Corrosion-Corruption: The negative of dreams

The progressive destruction of social structures, the devastation of our dreams and values, the lowness and corruption is the back side of a shining world and certainly our daily experience.

Willing to express that social condition I exploit the features that PVC offers, a material which I have been experimenting with during the last years, exploring its secrets and combining it with traditional materials and metals.
