Stefania Zocco:

"Raw Reality is a new body of works I am developing playing around the digital image’s features. I investigate digital landscape with oil painting on linen. By analysing data from contemporary landscapes, recent works as Like a cloud (pilota), interpret different modes of the human body in relation to the digital devices and the inevitable ping-pong between what you take from digital technology and what you give back through your data.

Looks like a cloud is the title of this oil on linen painting, it comes from looking at the digital landscape through the apophenia’s effect; apophenia is the spontaneous perception of connection and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena, as to see elephant shapes in cloud or the sea of data in abstract/disturbing encrypted files.

Every digital image is composed of a set of data created from a machine; once created, it needs to be translated with another device, thus the image is codified for our eye. I’m interested in this in-between moment, when the created image presents his raw features; using such a traditional technology as oil painting becomes crucial in treating these concepts."

"Books Gonna Read You" is the anagram behind the diptych’s title,

“If Kindle is upgraded with face recognition and biometric sensors, it can know what made you laugh, what made you sad and what made you angry.

Soon, books will read you while you are reading them”, Yuval Noah Harari
