RANE SUPREME 4
Mina and Balletti create a concrete image that abstracts Mina's ideal feminine beauty.
In this NFT, – Non-Fungible Token, i.e. a non-replicable and non-replaceable piece, a bodybuilder Mina spreads her arms and shows off her powerful muscles.
An image that Mauro Balletti created without the help of Photoshop because in 1987 this image processing system that allows a photograph to be digitally modified did not yet exist.
So Balletti photographed the two subjects and then superimposed them and rephotographed them. Then he eliminated the points of contact between the two photographs with analogue techniques, creating the final image which is part of Mina's 1987 album “Rane Supreme”.
The NFT proposes the exact moment before the airbrush processing of the superimposed image.
