Motivi is a collection of graphic compositions by artist Simon Boudvin, who created this during his residency at Villa Medici in Rome between 2020–2021. Drawing inspiration from famed Italian architectural and design magazines, Boudvin collected noteworthy pages from issues published in the 1980s. He then enlarged them by 400% to create 192 close-ups of seemingly random shapes and patterns. These reproduced fragments present a chapter in the history of Italian design, creating a background of the time.
