CosmoComic Drawing


A digital poetry interacts and responds with 3d printed sculptural objects placed on the surface of a wall. Moving lines are trying to create meaningful shapes to understand the act of drawing while a human voice is telling a story, typing its words and dealing with existential questions. Virtual and physical realms are in conversation with each other. Both are very present and at the same time physically absent.  Words enhance, together with the voice of the storyteller and the actual sound of the typing machine, the materiality and the acousticity of the space around them. The text is a performance and it is written without a specific logic nor a linear narrative structure. Somehow there is a need to connect dots with the attempt to create some sense out of it. The viewer is totally engaged with the wall as he would be part of it

Video installation on 48’’ screen.
Duration 4:25 min. Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Graduation show.  2021

IAM is a text based video performance. The work is a surrealistic conversation between a human and a digital entity and their challenge to find a common language to understand who and what they actually are. Code language is used as an experiment to define human feelings and emotions. Letters are written andsent to unknown receivers in an undefined time and space. Rhythmic computational poetry able the viewer/reader to experience the content of the text as a multi sensorial and intimate experience. The rhythm of the work is constructed by the human voice telling the story and the sound of the typing machine. Both elements give presence to the work and an intimate experience for the viewer.

Portrait of a pile of paper

Portrait of a pile of paper


Portrait of a pile of paper is a tower made of 35.000 A4 paper. Each paper collects the poetries and the texts of my entire work: every single page is a printed word, including punctuations. Every word has its own space and a place to be, to exist. From the outside it looks like a mysterious pile made of different type of papers that stand alone as a solitary and static piece placed intentionally in between moving images.

The tower is as high as the average human. Everyone can approach the tower almost on the tip of their toes (excluded very tall dutch visitors!) without touching it. Visitors almost confront themselves with the fragility, the mystery and yet the very strong presence of this sculpture. The pile signifies and shows the human process of collecting, accumulating and writing every single word as human treasure. It shows the materiality of this process and the physical and strong presence that it has when put out of its context.

Three little books - Libretti - tell a surrealistic conversation between a human and non human. The story begin in a world made of dreams, memories, forgotten realities and two voices that are trying to find a common language in order to communicate something to each other and ultimately to understand who they really are. Puzzuling multiple vocubularies and going through different exercises in different world the two realized that they are survaivors and that something incredible is about to happen. The collapse of the world. 
Phonemes, and graphisms are a great fascination that goes page by page, highlitging an acoustic rythm and  a strong visual connection between sounds and words.

"Silvia’s thesis ENTER/ESC, PLEASE is not just a thesis. It’s a book, but it is not just a book. It’s a project but it is not just a project. It is a book, a thesis, a project and part of a total project in which text, content, typography, design (footnotes, fonts, punctuation, page layout, quality ofpaper) play an equal role. The thesis itself as content and as an object (book) in turn plays a role in Silvia's complete oeuvre as it is currently unfolding. Every detail has been thought through, nothing is left to chance. The thesis can be divided into two parts: a so-called sense section and a non-sensical section. The subject of the thesis is text: text as LANGUAGE, as IMAGE, as OBJECT. Silvia states: This thesis has been written with the intent of being an interface between different worlds, different realities, different times. It is an attempt to be considered not only as an alphabetical linear text composed by words and concepts but also as a multilayered performative tool. Every layer of readings represents a world, a different reality. (…) It is a visual, phonetic and poetical experiment. An important topic in the thesis is the desire for the other and otherness. Based on Lacan (Man’sdesire is a desire for the Other) Silvia adds: ... contending that the" goal” of one's desire is to return to a primordial re-conflation between the Self and the Other. In this desire the engine 'spins' that encourages the discovery of new fantastic or even surrealistic worlds. Silvia's thesis is an all-over visual, intellectual and tactile experience (rollercoaster); moreover, very conscientiously and intelligently designed."
