TERATODONCIA. Terato- prefix from ancient greek Teras-ato [monster]. Doncia- from ancient greek ὀδούς [tooth].

This project starts from the belief that the instinct underlies several layers of reason; infra-dermis, turning the skin into a mask, a veil that conceals our animality, our ancestral being, which remains unchanged after years of beliefs, customs, cultures, theories and fashions. These are nothing more than ornaments, simple gold baits, precious and complex artifices that distract us as they lead us to follow the path of the most primitive drives.
