Philip Centenari

The search for Philip Centenarians rooted in the multimedia field where painting, video, mechanics and electronics coexist and are intertwined in nature projects "other" , creating interaction and tecniciste overthrowing the rules of the single means chosen.
The beginning sees the study and attention to the new digital and electronic media, supported by the use of computers as a means of distribution of their projects. In the second phase the pictorial material and plastic requires attention then bringing centenarians to develop a meta-language capable of betraying the traditions and overthrow the structural logic of common objects, leading them to interact with the viewer.
Centenarians constantly works with painting and video, looking for a medial synthesis and collage, by Polaroid to digital printing, video, installation and interaction of expressive means. A job which proceeds constantly fragmenting and reconstructing images and funds from history and the new digital spaces, the minimum fragments that become new - but it would be better to say - different harmony.
