This series of artworks, like others dedicated to nutrition, analyse the significance of image as food simulacrum.
Generally, the packaging and the label today often replace the touch of physical food matter, which loses its overall value of being a sustenance source and a spiritual connection with Cosmos; it instead acquires other values: typology, vitamin contents, calories, ingredients, commercial and status-symbol (food-symbol) importance; the concept of food is decomposed into a galaxy of particles, staying whole just in the promotional aesthetics, in the image.
In its picture, the aliment becomes model: no more apple, banana or kiwifruit, but ideal apple, banana and kiwifruit; a shaping orthodoxy of the image that dominates and nullifies any non-compliant reality.
