This book is not a book, it is an introspective game, a record of processes that show a way of operating on my own memory, on the changes and fragility of life. We created a “pantone formula guide”, where photographs of my own life are reinterpreted starting from experimentation with fire, air, boiling, or frozen water.

“Incinerating Adolescence”
“Incinerating Adolescence”

This work is motivated by my fascination with changes, my own image has mutated over time, has transformed, and continues to do so, just like these photographs. Matter, the physical body and the way of living and thinking the world are also subject to constant changes, some have a chemical nature, others are physical and then others at the level of thought. It is for this reason that I set out to play with some physical, chemical and alchemical experiences about my own image, to make visible in some way the transformations both in matter and memories and in some experiences of my life. This book is intended only as a gesture, an invitation for us to dare to look at ourselves, to feel, to converse with ourselves in the way we want.

“Boiling Youth”
“Boiling Youth”

The experience of systematic work in the laboratory with my own image, and with my own memories (transforming the image and its content) is an alchemical experience, of transmutation, of changing from one thing to another. The results are more powerful than I had expected them to be since the image moves me with an unexpected depth because it encourages my memory to remember, to think about what I was, what I lived, what I am.

“An Evaporated Present”
“An Evaporated Present”

The work of intervention and transformation that I have carried out on personal portraits is a work on the image itself that somehow turns them into self-portraits. The selected photographs were taken by other people, they are part of a family collection or album, a general practice in our context that accompanies the family image, building a story and an image of the group and each of its members. By appropriating the portraits and intervening them with specific meanings they become self-portraits. Now, these representations define me from my own intention and meaningful construction. During the transformation process of the photographs, new unexpected senses arose that were incorporated into the image.

"Solidifying Childhood"
"Solidifying Childhood"

The book is divided into 4 chapters, one for each stage lived: C.1 "Solidifying Childhood", C.2 "Youth in Boiling", C.3 "Incinerating Adolescence" and C.4 "An Evaporated Present ”. For each photograph belonging to a stage of my life I used and linked a physical-chemical operation that has acted as a trigger for reflections and content that the image apparently did not have since it only represented a chronological moment associated with a specific event. The physical and chemical alterations that I used in the photographs affected both the papers -support- and the images -at the level of meaning-. These transformations disturb the representation of the image as imagined or conceived. The memories and experiences of which the photos commonly speak are seen in these experiences modified as other senses, memories and associations appear.
