The visions of Gianni Ferrero Merlino are created thanks to a skil-ful control of the entire photographic
procedure, from the shot to the print, which allows him to subject reality to a radical transfi guration process. The result of painstaking darkroom work and editing, DOM ED is a unique work, made up of a series of images placed side by side, depicting a number of architectural portions of St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh. The subject is a combination of neutral geometries on which he intervenes to try out a new construction. The original image is used as a sort of learning board, a fi tting together of surfaces that hint at the very syntax of the construction. Ferrero Merlino’s interventions aim to trigger a procedure of the knowledge of various areas. On the basis of this exploration, thanks to the use of light inside the darkroom, in the fi nal stage he marks the photographic surface to the point of outlining a new design of the subject.
