In these digital works merge two interpretations of the meaning of copy. The old negative connotation is abandoned altogether to make room for two concepts that address the copy as a necessary basis for learning. The first is imitation as a way of perceiving the reality around us. We are what we copy, we learn from imitating from birth. We walk, talk and we act in a certain way simulating actions of others, taking the lead from them. But the copy behave also as a word of mouth, which is the second meaning I would like to suggest. From one person to another the object changes, the details recounted in each step change and what results is a personal interpretation, something new. At the end of the chain, the initial object will be completely transformed. Every living species copy and transform, evolving from that.
