Artificial Infinite is a photographic enquiry, by Argentinian Fernando Maselli, on the aesthetic category of the sublime. These recreations, which pursue the bewilderment of the sublime, also embrace the vehicular concern of contemporary photographic discourse: the elucidation of the boundaries between reality and its representation.
Artificial Infinite is a photographic enquiry by photographer Fernando Maselli, which is represented as a controlled fear that attracts the soul, present in qualities like immensity, infinity, emptiness, loneliness and silence.

The works included in this volume are not shots taken directly from reality but, instead, they offer landscapes that were recreated through a complex photographic staging, in which Maselli highlights through different techniques such as fragmentation, repetition, proliferation and superposition, the magnificence of the mountain ranges previously photographed from nature.

Maselli offers steep mountain ranges whose semi-darkness, profusion, depth and height come together as the visual achievement of what we may call “the terrifying sublime,” what causes a vortex that disrupts the illusion of security of our everyday regulated and orderly existence.

Employing this technical and formal strategy, Maselli points at the appeal of the unassailable, the cravings that humans hold for the unknown strongholds of nature. This recreations, that pursue the bewilderment of the sublime, embrace at the same time, what seems to become still, and since the eighties, the vehicular concern of contemporary photographic discourse: the elucidation of the boundaries between reality and its representation.

Fernando Maselli (1978) is an Argentinian photographer based in Madrid, who has made advertising photography for brands such as Coca Cola, Mercedes Benz, Samsung and Toyota. At the same time he has created artistic projects closely related to natural landscape, trapping the viewer in a moral and emotional reflection upon nature.
