In the video work “What is a Man Without a Shadow” digital morphogenesis is used, as a method, taking its inspiration from biology, to describe the process of the evolutionary development of organisms and polymorphic systems. In digital morphogenesis, new forms replace the former, through the logic of optimization, via an open system of states of constant interaction. These organized structures are turning radically into disorganized ones, creating general disorder. Images get gradually degraded, revealing entities that change the consistency of space and time, with an average entropy value. As a result, they enable new realities to be tested in a virtual space, allowing consecutively the evolution of the beings who strive to mark their existence in sequences that interact, passing from one situation to another and generating the genetic material of the project.
