Vulnerability devices
PVC Banner printing, glossy finish, 150x250cm

The series of photographs circles around new narratives regarding masculinity and dependency[1] . The photographs are part of a series of still-life. I’ve designed some amoebozoa-shaped-chimeras that I have photographed on the chest of some of my close friends.
The design is inspired by Verdin’s pneumograph - a device firstly used as a lie detector. Composed from different visual non-human attributes like sea cucumber, tree frog or tortoise beetle for example, the objects oscillate between body signals capture devices and amulets.
