A photographic incursion into virtual environments
The series tells a research exercise in virtual photography. By exploring an unconventional form of interaction with the virtual reality of video games, this series of images may help the idealization of new possibilities to improve the human aesthetic experiences from the use of digital technologies of reality simulation.

"The Reinvention of Reality"
Experimental illustration for studies of composition, lighting and post-processing techniques of digital images. The image alludes to the concept of "culture" as a consequence of the human's hability to translate, to transform and to invent their own reality, both in physical and symbolic dimensions.

"Splash - Acid N’ Iced Pixels"
Conceptual illustration developed for studies of techniques on digital representation of liquid elements. "Splash - Acid N 'Iced Pixels" is also a study about hyperreal imagery expression. Hiperreal expressions uses contemporary technologies to transcend the aesthetic limits of natural reality while preserving the essential aspects of natural phenomena or elements they represent.

Keywords: Cultural Anthropology, Symbolism, Interpretivism.

Através deste ensaio, proponho uma breve análise da interdependência entre aspectos culturais e a dinâmica social de algumas sociedades indígenas no intuito de identificar possíveis "elos", estágios “evolutivos” ou “transformativos” da linguagem e da cultura humana que podem demarcar uma possível condição de transição entre sociedades com escrita e sem escrita, além de ampliar a compreensão acerca da possibilidade de diferentes grupos humanos conceberem e atribuírem significados distintos à própria existência enquanto reflexo da influência recíproca entre os modos de desenvolvimento cultural e de organização e transformação socal.

Symbolic Interlacements - And the notion of Identity
ENTRELAÇAMENTOS SIMBÓLICOS - E A NOÇÃO DE IDENTIDADE

© Eduardo Galvani

Through this essay, I try to understand some aspects of the modes of symbolic appropriation and representation that may influence the process of human’s individual identity constitution in different historical and socio-cultural contexts. The notion of 'symbolic interlacements' is proposed and developed here by representing a key feature of this process, as exemplified within the text.

Através deste ensaio, busca-se compreender alguns aspectos dos modos de apropriação e de representação simbólica que podem influenciar no processo de constituição das identidades dos indivíduos humanos em diferentes contextos históricos e sócio-culturais. A noção de “entrelaçamentos simbólicos” é formulada e desenvolvida aqui por representar uma característica fundamental deste processo, conforme exemplificado no texto.

FLY™ CITYCOPTER - Concept Aerial Vehicle
© Eduardo Galvani

Most cities are builded over a very limited space. Since the modern car was invented, is easy to see that the urban traffic gets more complicated and overflowing as faster as cities and the urban population grows, and that the pollution caused by CO2 emission is letting the urban atmosphere each time worse. Thinking about this new reality, Fly™ Citycopter was conceived as a new urban aerial vehicle. Electricity powered and sun rechargeable, Fly™ is most efficient, economic and cheaper than a common helicopter.

A PERFORMANCE HUMANA

Neste ensaio, proponho uma análise contemporânea da condição humana a partir do paradoxo existencialista de afastamento e aproximação entre o ser humano e a sua natureza em função do materialismo histórico. O texto tem por principais referências teóricas o filme Blade Runner, de Ridley Scott, o clássico conto Frankstein, de Mary Shelley, e o texto Antropologia do Ciborgue - As Vertigens do Pós-Humano, de Donna Haraway, Hari Kunzru e Tomaz Tadez.
