Time Journeys through matter. The cunning of nature

Imagine and create new sensations to produce new emotions. With this philosophy Matteo Tampone expresses himself in art, design and communication. Expressive techniques, how material behaves and the support of technology are the treasure of borderless exploration. Artistically on “Time Journeys” Matteo Tampone explores research on oxidation processes. Reaction and transformation of surfaces, colours changing in a time journey challenging the “speed of time” as if to highlight how our world changes so fast. Two projects narrate this research: the first is the lamp sculpture Materia 1A, an object created by man in the past is found again, the recognisable shape of a semi-sphere takes on new light; the second is Reperti - shapes modified naturally - here nature elaborates elements created by man giving them new shapes and new connotations, its “strength” models the original shape interpreting the aesthetic characterisation.
