The post-human condition places the subject at the center of an interlaced reality, filled by technology that transforms everything into abstract shapes and geometries. Among the cranes, the beach, the benches, the piers, man is a prisoner of that reality he contributed to build. Tina Cosmai’s project Manikins suggests that in such a world, loneliness will become the existential condition of individuals who are increasingly separated from each other and from the community itself.
Unable to talk, they wander aimlessly, hypnotized by the technique that pushes them towards a regressive drift. Under the reassuring rationality of lines and volumes, the primordial anxieties of an IO increasingly suffocated and compressed by hypermodernity resurface. In this hallucinated scenario, men, unaware, become dummies of themselves, trapped in the dense network of abstractions, often unwittingly generated by themselves.
