“And a big fire storm…poured on the earth” is the title of my “LaceR/Actions” artwork showed above. After the rain, the lacerated paper (of an ads billboard) absorbs colours and moistness. The final effect is something of “apocalyptic” that suggested me that title…

“LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 24.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles, or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn advertisings give new life to paper lacerations. I think that in the lacerated advertisings is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital. Some “Lacer/Actions” artworks were published in a booklet-portfolio: Pics of torn (publi)city”. In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport, Italy).Myartworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perceptions (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests.
