Artwork on Aluminium by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” project about realistic and not manipulated images of torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and urban “signs”.
The image is a magnification of cracks on a waste-container placed in Amsterdam near the Royal Palace (2012).
Title inspired by Terrence Malick ‘s movie

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks at www.robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com/
