Octopus series

A series spanning three years. As a child, I spent most of my summers on an island in the Adriatic, where my great-grandfather had a restaurant on the beach. I used to fish the inhabitants of the sea and prepare meals for my family. I spontaneously decided to print the freshly caught, still writhing, octopuses on whatever paper I could find. After repeating this process three times I could not continue hunting and consuming these beings. Their imprint on paper serves as a document of the implications of my actions on the environment. They are the best example, I have experienced, of the power of artistic processes to initiate another kind of understanding.
