Optogenetics is part of the research field of neurosciences that observes behaviours in brain cells. Penso finds inspiration in genetic structures and works sculpturally with these shapes in different types of spaces. In the encounter between the greater external world, in the form of the urban space’s historical monuments and the microscopic inner world, an interesting tension is created. Penso allows us to access new perspectives of the unseen and paves the way for new lines of thought.
