LIKE A GARDEN IN WINTER…: FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 MACRO PHOTOS

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my photo collection of torn and decomposed publicity posters. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…

RETROSPECTIVE: BLUE TRACKS / TRACCE BLU (VIDEO, 2010)

“Blue Tracks / Tracce Blu” was made exactly 10 years ago: in January 2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. I took some of the macro photographic images of torn advertising posters. This is another video clip for “Lacer/actions” project. The dominant color of these images is blue  And the tears and decomposition of paper often take the form of water, rain, ice and sky.

Interested in these images in exclusive and original copies? Please contact:  funtasyeditrice@gmail.com

“Tracce Blu” è stato realizzato 10 anni fa, nel gennaio 2010. L’ho creato attraverso la piattaforma Animoto, accettando la sfida di produrre un videoclip di trenta secondi di durata massima. Ho preso alcune delle immagini fotografiche macro di manifesti pubblicitari strappati e decomposti. Il colore dominante di queste immagini è il blu. E gli strappi e la decomposizione della carta assumono spesso la forma di pioggia, cieli, acqua e ghiaccio…

MACRO PHOTOS OF A WASTE BASKET WITH CORROSIONS AND CRACKS

Video for Lacer/actions Project. The wear and tear of time causes corrosion and cracking. This is what happened to the waste baskets placed in the center of a surprising medieval village, Abbadia San Salvatore, on Mount Amiata, in the heart of Tuscany. The yellow paint, over the years, has peeled off and corroded, leaving room for imaginary arabesques that the eye of my camera caught at close range. Soundtrack: Consort for Brass, Kevin MacLeod (YouTube Audio Library).

THE FOUR SEASONS IN LACER/ACTIONS: WINTER #4

© Roberto Alborghetti

Each season has its colors. But what colors does winter have? Easy to answer, just look around … The torn advertising posters on billboards also have winter colors. So, through my macro photos  I tried to imagine a color palette … Yes, trails of snow and ice, in exclusive for my LaceR/Actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. 

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some of the 120.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us. A videoclip will follow very soon.

Ogni stagione ha i suoi colori. Ma che colori ha l’inverno? Facile rispondere, basta del resto guardarsi attorno… Anche i manifesti strappati della pubblicità hanno colori invernali. Ho quindi provato ad immaginare una tavolozza di colori… Sì, scie di neve e di ghiaccio…

UFFIZI FIRENZE: ECCO PER LA PRIMA VOLTA GLI SPETTACOLARI “CIELI DEL RINASCIMENTO”

For the first time on show: the spectacular”Skies of the Renaissance”.

OKAY!

I disegni per soffitti di Michelangelo, i Sangallo e Vasari raccontanola genesi e l’ornamento di importanti edifici e chiese. Esposto, per la prima volta al pubblico, un rarissimo lacunare ligneo di età romana scoperto di recente ad Ercolano.

Questa stanza non ha più pareti
Ma alberi
Alberi infiniti

Quando sei qui vicino a me
Questo soffitto viola
No, non esiste più
Io vedo il cielo sopra noi
Che restiamo qui
Abbandonati
Come se non ci fosse più
Niente, più niente al mondo

(“Il cielo in una stanza”, G. Paoli, 1960)

Il soffitto metafora del cielo. Forme quadrate, rettangolari o ottagonali tutte riccamente decorate invitano i visitatori delle chiese e dei palazzi rinascimentali a sollevare gli occhi al cielo. Da elemento costruttivo nato per proteggere gli ambienti a ornamento che fonde nel suo insieme tutte le arti. Per la prima volta il Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle…
