Claudio Romo's pictures celebrate de facto the collapse of anatomy. Drawn with black ink to create nettings that evoke a digital dimension, Romo's illustrations suggest that the dream may be a nightmare, turning into an apocalypse where the virtual becomes real erasing all the borders that we basically find reassuring. But it is up to us to decide whether to welcome or not the most momentous metamorphosis that our species have ever experienced. Will we remain terrified in front of the idea of losing the old physical envelopes in which we thought our identity was rooted? Or will we set them ablaze, abandoning ourselves to ecstasy and transfiguration?
