Arcana Nature Artifice
We have been excited to work with the Philosoper Emanuele Coccia for the set of Major Arcana Nature-Artifice. The arcana set interwave the meaning of the traditional Visconti-Sforza arcana set, designed by Brembo Cicognara in 1451. Each Major Arcana has been translated in a symblolic glossary of design issues on the theme of Nature and Artifice, for the 2021 interdisciplinary Workshop of Politecnico di Milano, Lead by Professor Giovanna Piccinno, Elisa Cattaneo and Emanuele Coccia.
As in the dadaist game of Cadavre exquis, we created for each issue a card, allusion and symbolic meaning are translatedwith mixed media. They are completed by the aphorism written for each card by Emanuele Coccia, inspired by emblem literature and latind Palindrome.

Maetherea Invited Designer and Artists to its launch event, CADAVRE EXQUIS, with Patricia Stadler at the BargeHouse in London.

In 1925, on a winter night in Paris, the Cadavre Exquis was born from the surrealist imagination of Andre Breton, Marcel du Champ, and Yves Tanguy.The term Exquisite Corpse refers to a collective assembly of images and words. It is an exercise in appropriation and applied creativity. It doesn’t tell the story of a single frame, but stratification of narratives, each unique and recognizable, overlapped in time.5 Tables. 5 Talks. 25 Designers.We will re-live the Dadaist parlor experiment collectively generating unpredictable designs. The process of appropriation is the mechanism. Letting go is the key.In this our inaugural event. over the course of the evening, 5 invited artists, designers and architects will speak. This is a symposium of Natural Technology and Digital Biodynamics. We are interested in seeing output from these overlapped discussions. How we shape nature in a non-real world? How do we interlock biological features and digital landscapes?

Cristina Morbi Presented the Concept of Surralist Parlour an Appropriation as process of Design. Design Art and Architecture Symposium.
Talk and Simultaneous Design. Kristina Chan – Lucid Dreams in Printed Landscapes. Gabriel Tanase – Ethereal to Pixels. Bruno Zamborlin – Hyperfurfaces. Diane Chappalley – Psychological Landscapes. Alicia Hidalgo – Ethereal Non-Natura.
