The works creatively reinvent some organs with synthesis: the eye, the brain (hypofisis/pinneal gland) and the vertebral column as conceptual objects in metal and plexiglass of a pure shape and an assumption: if the eye is pure so is the body. Unitransmutation or the model of “Perceptive Unitransmutator” originates from experiments regarding the functioning of the eye / brain. The nerve / optical ray in its horizontal extension, passes through 7 levels of perception, 7 chakras, 7 colours of the iris that we may find in the semi-spherical steel cap of Dynamic Center of Gravity; metaphor of the atom. From its nucleus a transparent, fluctuating and dynamic spindle-shaped stylized vertebral column stems vertically. Tilting and unstable, in its incessant motion tending to the search of balance, it represents the moment in which the need to approach our existence dynamically is rooted within us. From the sight to an interior vision throughout a rotating iris. Three discs are inclined in perpetual motion: Morpho Vision. Constantly moving, just as we ourselves do and as our planet and the whole universe do. Rotating, the discs illuminate our sight with colour making it richer. At the centre is the pupil as a fixed pivot passing through the 7 levels until it reaches the retina/skullcap. The shiny surface reflects the images of what surrounds it as impressed on the retina.

The inclination of the degrees by which the earth’s axis tilts in relation to the sun, the position of our heart with respect to our rib-cage. It also represents the lay-out of the eye’s medial axis and orbital axis.

There is something in the brain which doesn’t distinguish the difference between us and others. Also the acknowledgement of emotions seems to lie on an ensenmble of neural circuits which, as different as they may seem, share that “mirror” characteristic already witnessed in the case of actions.

The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention. It is the most important product of his creative brain. It’s ultimate purpose is the complete mastrey of mind over the material world, the harnessing of the forces of nature to human needs.

Potentia (Dynamis in greek) expresses the potential, the ability, the chance of an unrealized action. Aristotelian precepts also refer to Dynamis which means possibility. Potential is not only a mental concept, but it is the sense of being.

It is about a “pre-conceptual” comprehension, which obliges us reconsider the meaning itself of comprehension and recognition. Tying the complex of cognitive activities such as memory, perception and language.
