    Revealed to the public eye in 2009 by DUST, this series earned him the prestigious Hasselblad Masters Award in 2012. He was then asked to conceive a new series on the theme : "Evoke". Hence the birth of Klecksography, organic sculptures created by symmetrically articulated bodies. Valsecchi's inspiration for this series is drawn from the works of Swiss Psychiatrist Rorschach, whose method implied using imagery created by inkstains on a piece of paper then folded into two. Where the latter used their interpretation by patients to diagnose schizophrenia or dementia, Valsecchi 's approach is the opposite. The one he calls his interior foe - this dark side in each one of us which we try to constantly restrain - is given full freedom of expression, and the ability to overcome bodily constraints. During two months, in a derelict hangar beating to the tribal rhythms of Kate Bush'es album "the Dreaming", he pushes himself and his models over the brink of exhaustion, reaching out for total burnout. At that climactic point, the mind disincarnates itself from the body, leaving behind a mechanical flesh and bone entity, bereaved of any willpower: except that of the photographer's dictates, or , rather, those of his subconsciousness.
