I suoi interessi artistici e le sue attività nel campo dell’arte concettuale sono iniziati dopo l’incontro e l’amicizia con l’artista cubano Diango Hernàndez. Durante il suo viaggio creativo Morandini esplora il tema del linguaggio attraverso diversi mezzi: arti digitali, video, performance, disegni automatici, dipinti e installazioni cinetiche, sonore e / o luminose.  Negli anni la sua ricerca artistica si focalizza sulla relazione tra il linguaggio e i suoi strumenti, alterandone gli equilibri e le funzioni per creare armonie o dissonanze concettuali, attraverso l’accumulo e l’ossessione, creando così una o più nuove realtà. Parte del suo codice di comunicazione artistica è rappresentato dall’arte relazionale, con cui scopre nuovi modi per esprimere le relazioni sociali e lo scambio di informazioni (il progetto interattivo “Le tele sociali” e la ricerca sul tema della manipolazione come soggetto concettuale – progetto “11 principi”.
