The accuracy of the eye and the colors in the impression of the artifact,

namely photography, inevitably of the present

where light marks the future.

Živa Kraus

The interest in the relationship between space and time is at the heart of his research. Sometimes Carmeni chooses his colors on the basis of literary inputs; the green of Garcia Lorca, or the intuitions of the writer and mathematician Lewis Carroll. Thus, Carmeni is an architect, a researcher, a photographer, and an experimenter. But he is also a cartographer – in the true sense of the word, as testified by his in-depth analyses of geographic maps – when working on a snapshot and selecting what to highlight and what to blur in order to outline what we can call a new "photographic geography".
