      The subject chosen by Perrone is a screenshot reproducing a 3D reconstruction of the back of a bodybuilder's knee joint. Cut and completely isolated from the rest of the body, it becomes an abstract element, fluctuating in a flat and atmospheric space where the light describes a volume and surface that are apparently human, yet more similar to those of a sculpture. Perrone considers this subject as an element of an articulated process of stratification and repetition, an endlessly reproducible modular image. Perrone has chosen a form that mirrors and emphasizes the principle of reproducibility – at the core of all printing techniques.
