Quasi-Objects Lorenzo Oggiano
The Quasi-Objects cycle, initiated in 2003, is composed of photographic and videographic materials generated with the assistance of 3d modeling, animation and rendering software.As products springing from digital calculation, synthetic images are free from any reference to optical reality and from relationships of existential references; the possibility of accessing, thanks to them, to plausibility, abandoning at the same time any attempt to a "judgement of truth", not only opens up creative research to unattended plastic horizons but - by inevitably shifting attention from the Image itself to the "knowledge-quota" of the digital model that establishes its Presence (from the output to the process) - we think it contributes to make ourselves positively willing to constructive thought about the relationships we entertain with the Real and particularly on the meaning of Life in terms of a real and autonomous process disjoint from any specific material manifestation, a generative grammar that is independent from the holding subject. In this Sense Quasi-Objects regards actualization of data, production of biologically a-functional occurrences (bio-politically dysfunctional), dealing about Life, but without reference to the outcomes it is used to recognize; possibilities that can be viewed as transient outputs of an operative practice: aesthetics of process.
