Through historycal events and personal facts, the artist comes to unveil how each digital image is governed on a underlying code. Reflection developed and examined in the series of photographic portaits, Untitled, realized by the hand-copying on a chequered paper, of any single pixel color code of some Internet-found mugshots images. Although numbers are report in each single square, the shape of the portraits remain visible. Some portraits are anonymous, other are dedicated to characters of the lates news, that are in some way related to the code world.
