Sabrina Ratté brings Monades to Planet LEV, a series of works made with 3D scans of her own body, that become the raw material to be digitally sculpted, deconstructed and re-contextualized.

Many inspirations have formed this project, such as the concept of the cyborg by Donna J. Haraway, Hans Bellmer’s drawings, Greek Mythology, as well as an underlying reflection on self-portrait and the place of the body in the digital world.

The result is a series of digital cyborg/goddesses, captive within the limitations of their own subjectivities, that embody the philosophic concept of monade, where each individual is a fragmented mirror of a larger reality.
