Modules appear to be both repetitive and random, their recurrent pattern being noticeable and yet never strictly locatable. They both suggest echos to the most up-to-date formal recourses, and allow the viewer to doubt whether the building itself is organic or just stained.

While viewing this elegant tartar deposit, these solid frothy bubbles a metaphorical mistral left behind, we are invited to a poetic reading of health-care “medicalized” environments and their topographical and sociological context. The anxiety a sterile environment arouses gets disrupted by the presence of the art work as a miasma, conveying an uncanny feeling all around.
Faustino keeps inciting the viewer to question his or her too familiar surroundings, he cuts through their surfaces and prevents us from unequivocal readings.
