Geometric Variants: Erika Zolli Explores Relationships Between Human Mind And Surrounding Space Via Optical Illusion

Erika Zolli is a fine art photographer based in Milan, Italy. Her work explores the dreamlike dimension of the mind through surreal worlds she’s created. Although these worlds are often strange, they have a lightness and a sense of magic, too.
In ‘Geometric Variants’ project, Erika plays on the geometric relationship between man and space. If in her previous work, ‘Surreal Arabesque’, she had shown the extravagance of the imagery through a strong color saturation, in this new project, however, we come back to pure minimalism all in black and white.
Erika Zolli: ‘The whole project is inspired by the theory of variants. It shows how the energy of man’s thoughts ends up in a field of space around it, called the space of variants, giving rise to the material realization of the variant itself. In ‘Geometric Variants’ are represented: space, intended as a background made up of repeated geometric shapes, the subject and the creation of the variant date, represented by the union between the subject and his choice of how and where to position himself in relation to space’.
