I create Mathematical Art because I think it is very interesting to be able to make visible abstract ideas.
Starting from Platonic theory of ideas, according to which the real essence of this imperfect world is the perfect Geometry, I like to create pure and essential shapes, where these shapes are nothing but the mental hidden landscape.
I am trying to experiment new methods to represent and then to simulate the geometric properties of the movement with computer graphics.

Geometric Man
Geometric Man
1920 x 1080

Geometric Man is a virtual journey into the “imaginary Time”, in search of another dimension into Space. His movement represents a conceptual abstraction of the “real Time”. Time loses here its linearity, gaining cyclicality: it becomes a spiral. “Geometric Man” is meant to be a “shade”, that is an abstraction. Denatured from his anthropomorphic forms, it becomes "Compass” and writes a story in the “actual Time” which, in turn, leads to another story in the “imaginary Time” and vice versa. However, the two stories can be very different. By manipulating visual properties like reflections and refractions, we show in it how it is possible to create a fourth spatial dimension.
