This project explores the relationship between intentional human activity and spontaneous natural processes, by zooming in on various walls throughout the city of Florence. The photos of this series show wallpaintings or wallscapes, formed by natural processes affecting artificial layers of paint. They are snapshots of a process in constant transformation, creating and destroying what the human eye could perceive as beauty. The emerging shades of color and the organic lines formed by these natural processes, oppose the plain and structured way the paint has been applied.
