This image is a collage created by Roberto Alborghetti with more than 250 small paper pieces collected along the streets as waste materials from torn and decomposed publicity posters and billboards spaces.

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban signs.

Roberto Alborghetti has collected so far around the world more than 40.000 images.

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages (as the work shown above) or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.
