In the past, we used to gaze at the stars in romantic awaiting of the visit of a space traveller that would bring wisdom, and reveal to us the secrets of the universe. At the same time, others would look at the sky suspiciously, fearing this apocalyptic encounter. What about you? What expectations do you have?

Clones and modified bodies
The body is the only real border that separates us from other creatures. A material element that defines something as intangible as our personality and essence: you could call it “soul”. A change in the body can affect the mind. But if our body could renew itself for eternity, what would happen to our mind?

They live in the shadows, in the stories and in everyday fears. They are an object of derision and a source of chills. So iconic to have become a classic. Incredibly common, undistinguishable from our reflection. Under our skin, primordial creatures are stirring to get out.

The living dead represent one of mankind’s ancestral fears. They force us to face the mortality of our bodies, they represent us as mindless slaves and push us, like so many Mr or Miss nobody, to fill the lines of these massive hoards, slow and unstoppable. However, sometimes an element breaks away from the mass, reclaiming his own identity and thirst for revenge.
