The SCPTIPMFLIPPES (Strumento Cavo Per Traguardare Il Paesaggio Marittimo Fissando Labili Immagini Pronte Per Essere Sublimate) is a small project developed with 3d-printing technology, a device for viewing the maritime landscape.

The SCPTIPMFLIPPES is a tool to isolate portions of maritime landscape, removed from the (visual) ground noise. The object is a pure geometric form, black, dug inside as if it had undergone the water erosion process.
