300.000 VIEWS! A NEW VIDEO THANKING YOU FOR THIS GREAT ACHIEVEMENT

Many Thanks to all of you for stopping by my Blog! 300.000! It’s a wonderful achievement. So, this is a new video (from my YouTube channel) to celebrate it. It’s “The torn (publi)city”. It represents my project. It represents my research through the amazing dimension of decomposition of matters, urban and industrial signs, natural cracks and scratches around us. Enjoy the video. And thank you so much!

THE TORN (PUBLI)CITY: SIGNS & CODES LEFT ON A BILLBOARD #3

After the advertisement has been torn and removed from the billboards, traces and marks of ink, glue and residuals of paper can be glimpsed on the surface. In my opinion, this is a sort of open-air exhibition. Our eye can read and admire strange shapes and a sort of codes that only the time and the chance can decipher.

I think all this is a real language. It is the expressive code of the road, which speaks and communicates in an absolutely surprising way. Yes, I am convinced that this is natural and pure street art, built by virtue of a force that is beyond our control. Yes, very suggestive black and white pics. You must be immediately ready to impress these scenes …

Also in this photogallery #3 I have gathered some of the images I took around a big outdoor billboard located in Milan area (Italy), as you may see in this photo.

 The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, my multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions! © Roberto Alborghetti

Dopo che la pubblicità è stata strappata e tolta dai tabelloni, si possono intravvedere, sulla superficie, tracce e segni di inchiostro, colla e residui di carta. A mio parere, tutto ciò costituisce uno spettacolo unico. Una mostra a cielo aperto. Il nostro occhio può leggere ed ammirare strane forme ed una sorta di codici che solo il caso e il fato possono decifrare. Penso che tutto ciò sia un linguaggio. E’ il codice espressivo della strada, che parla e comunica in un modo assolutamente sorprendente. Sì, sono convinto che questa sia vera e pura arte di strada, costruita in virtù di una forza che sfugge al nostro controllo. Sì, tutto molto suggestivo. Occorre essere subito pronti ad impressionare queste scene, parte del progetto “Lacer/azioni”…

MY NEW BOOK: “SOCIAL O DIS-SOCIAL?”, MEASURE YOUR WAY OF BEING (WELL) IN THE NET

“Social or dis-social?” is the title of my new book, soon to be published in Italy by Funtasy Editrice. I believe it is the first book that tells the youngest people, in a clear and sincer way, what is wrong with the indiscriminate abuse of the social networks and digital technologies. “Measure your way of being (well) in the Net”: this is the subtitle of the book, addressed to the people “Under 14” and presented with beautiful graphics and a very attractive design made by the illustrator Eleonora Moretti. Above: the video that promotes the book. For information: funtasyeditrice@gmail.com

 

 

 

ROME, THE UNIVERSE OF MACRO: CRACKS AND DECOMPOSED MATTERS #2

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

I think the universe of cracks is a really wonderful world… We are surrounded by cracks… We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor and “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along Rome streets. Yes, in the macro we can see a lot!

COLORS & SCRATCHES ALONG NOTTINGHAM AND BEESTON STREETS #2

© Roberto Alborghetti

The pictures featured in this photo-gallery aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated macro photos of the amazing imperfection of the real world we CAN see around us. I saw these scratches and decomposed matters along Beeston and Nottingham streets (UK) – the Land of Robin Hood – during my last visit, in March. Yes, where The Ghost Bus and the Land Rover Mapping projects have been made…

Roberto Alborghetti “LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings, natural cracks, scratches and urban/industrial tokens. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this photo-gallery showing some works from the collection of about 110.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

A Roberto Alborghetti Solo Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) and in the Romanesque Temple on Lake Como (Lenno). In Nottingham he developed 2 projects (The Ghost Bus, The Land Rover Mapping) with Bartons Plc and ACT Group founded by Marysia Zipser.
