Aesthetic Virus

Aesthetic Virus is a series of drawings of visual captures of an Imaginary Virus. The person is contaminated through eyesight. The narration of the drawings starts with the anatomy and biology of the Virus, its penetration to the person, the side-effects/damages it causes and concludes in more abstract semantics sketches, related to the transformation of the sick person. The mythological extension of the “Aesthetic Virus”, branches out to the relation of the person with their own self, the observatory look of contemporary art and the creator’s identity, as well as the equine speed of information (DATA). It’s an allegory, inspired by an alloy of experience and feeling, which oscillates between the notions of blindness and transformation.
