Was ist Metaphysik by Michele Durazzi

What happens when an architecture project is intentionally from another world? Using different digital tools of 3D representation, the Italian artist Michele Durazzi explores the limits of architecture in a journey within surreal minimalism.

“Was ist Metaphysik?” (title borrowed from a philosophical work of Martin Heidegger, 1929) is storytelling through the architectural detail. Durazzi has created a world of surrealist and grandiose buildings, an imaginary urban landscape where the only self-imposed limit is a clear preference for geometry and simple visual compositions.  The series shows scenarios in which unique perspectives are established by the camera and that offer a careful duality between human being and architecture by reducing everything to the essentials: white tones and symmetrical structures.

“The relationship with the human presence determines the scale, vastness and at the same time the heideggerian ‘dasein’, or being-there: the keystone of existentialist philosophy, for which any ontological significance is related to the subject that expresses, both as presence that as language.” explains Durrazi.
