Tomo Stanic


“Classification” is a diary of images – everyday images are collected in a collage and juxtaposed with one creature-monster image from Aldrovandi’s book Monstrorum Historia (1642). The work deals with the emergence of automatism, repetitive design principles and sequences of images of different interests, and indirectly with the problem of structuring order and classification.
