The contrast of Vermeer years and the modern days. We achieved it by creating a classic atmosphere like in Dutch Golden Age paintings and implementing modern elements as technology. These days we already discuss such topics as the connection of artificial intelligence to our bodies, life in a metaverse, transhumanism and entomophagy. With this project, we are asking a question: is humanity ready for the next step in our history? " In Silico" in modern science refers to experimental techniques performed by computers in living organisms. We implemented the symbolism of classic Dutch art.

My name is Marta Romashina, I am a photographer and journalist with a flair for fashion. I pursued my undergraduate degree in fashion marketing at Raffles Design Institute in Shanghai. I have a Master's in Fashion Buying from Polimoda school in Florence, Italy. Informed by my background in the fashion business, my photography practice combines academic research with an interest in social issues. Five years of life in Asia greatly influenced my aesthetic: bright colors, unusual angles, symbolism and a sense of surreality.
