THE EIDOZOAN The eidozoan (from eidos- “image” and -z� “living being”) is a living image created, grown and inoculated into di�erent visual hosts and whose habitats are known as imaginaria. EIDOZOOLOGY: THE SCIENCE OF LIVING IMAGES Images are living beings. Images are born, grow and live in their habitat (the imaginarium) in a way that resembles biological proce�es. Images are born, grow, evolve, f�d themselves, su�er, mate, mutate, extinct, migrate, fight, stru�le, proliferate, die. To investigate how an image can live, interact with di�erent imaginaria and other images, I have started creating sorts of “guinea-pig images”: something that reca�ed nothing precisely, yet living, able to evolve and to inhabit any imaginarium: i ca�ed it “eidozoan” (living image). My art is e�entia�y an uninte�upted experiment about eidozoans’ behaviour and its relationships with a strange but welcoming habitat: our visual world. Here are some examples of eidoz�tic experiments. Vacon Sartirani, eidoz�logist
