Teresa Pera about her series Cal.ligrafies: What relationships are established between art, nature, and artifacts? I address this question in my artwork through an observation of artistic practices, in which I consider how technology, art, and science have affected our perception of nature. I am interested in exploring the correlation between art and nature, a theme that persists over time and which defines the relationship between natural esthetics and artistic esthetics by similarity or contrast. Nature appears in my work as a global living organism pulled from a scientific and poetic vision that proposes an alternative reality and seeks to exchange with those who observe it. I establish relationships between the environment and the observation of natural phenomenon in one’s memory and experience. A journey that travels from the experimentation of the object to the image and vice-versa. From her masters thesis in june 2017.
