Platonic Simulacra, the title of this photographic series, are not Platonic solids which are in the three-dimensional space regular and convex polyhedrons: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron. This work alludes to the Platonic world of ideas emphasizing the interrelation between perception, imaginary, and thinking which structure reality. The pivot of geometry and science is thinking or mental processes.

What is real and what is a copy of the real?  Does our thinking create reality? And how can truth and reality coincide?
