We are who we are

 

Founded in 2006, Ipologica takes its name from a discovery, a word that generates the meeting between the two largest fields of human nature: logic and sensitive impulse.

In this magical combination, Ipologica seeks balance in the conflict between real and surreal, technology and human, individualism and collectivity, silence and noise.

Ipologica resonates in the fractures created by the contrast between human nature and the whole universe, looking for a hybrid language that puts in communication what, at first judgment, seems different.

Ipologica is exploration, connection, fusion of languages and disciplines.
