I have been commissioned as exhibit photographer by O+A Studio, from San Francisco.
The O + A team shared their study during the last Salone del Mobile, with a site-specific exhibit for “A joyful sense at work” project.
The installation refers to the possibility of future anthropocentric workspaces.
Undoubtedly, it has been captivating to participate in this project with my photography.
How much of the physical office may be digitized and stored in a cloud?
Working with Microsoft Hololens, O+A’s explore how much of the physical office may be stored in a cloud… “the actual brick and mortar spaces (or steel and glass) may be as minimal as the galleries of an art museum”

As for individuals belonging to a group, institutions are also to be understood as social bodies which need the closest settlement to aggregate. Companies are physically alongside each other, interconnected to the point of being able to converse among themselves, the distance would mark guilty isolation, absenteeism from decision-making power.
Japan is not the only one with a rhythm ” aesthetic”, characterized by the movement back and forth between sobriety and exuberance aesthetics.
This type of contrast undoubtedly occurs in all cultures. Japan is a fascinating case study, however, because both traditions, sober and exuberant, have a long and rich history.
Some elements of both traditions have derivations indigenous, while others were imported from abroad.
The Japanese have managed to integrate both trends, without trying to integrate them into a homogeneous whole. Rather, the Japanese seem to take pleasure in this duality
