> a brief story:
> “The lance is mentioned in the Gospel of John (19:31–37), but not the Synoptic Gospels. The gospel states that the Romans planned to break Jesus’ legs, a practice known as crurifragium, which was a method of hastening death during a crucifixion. Just before they did so, they realized that Jesus was already dead and that there was no reason to break his legs. To make sure that he was dead, a Roman soldier (named in extra-Biblical tradition as Longinus) stabbed him in the side.” (aka Longinus Blade, Holy Lance, Lance of Longinus, Spear of Destiny, Holy Spear)
> about the project:
> “The “Alien Structures” photographs are part of a larger series entitled “Impossible Architectures”, started a few years ago, which is a long-term open-ended project structured in three different tiers. The sequence that I’m presenting in this entry puts under a hyper-realist intimate scrutiny several architectural images. The mirroring applied to the original images accentuates the inherent dual nature of the subject and creates a new potential space of self-integration, thus giving birth to new impossible architectural disclosures. The reflected image is, in fact, a newborn architectural space that enriches the world of the imaginary, highlighting the infinite possibilities to dream on. The world of dreams, the most intimate of spaces, becomes a never-ending speculation – perhaps a little Freudian, but nonetheless nourishing. It is not a haze, but a daydream, within which different scenarios may be played-out by the viewer’s imagination.”
