THEY AREN’T PAINTINGS OR LAND MAPS SEEN FROM A SATELLITE. THEY ARE…

They are called artificial bumps, or speed bumps… They are buildings made of rubber placed by the Municipalities to induce to slow down, so that road safety improves. They are often used in an inappropriate and exaggerated way. Often they are mixed with pedestrian crossings, thus creating strange, bizarre hybrids, on the verge of legality.
I have found a way to see them in another way. That is: taking a close-up photograph when they are damaged and worn. Exciting “pictures” come out. They look like maps of a territory seen from from the top of a satellite… But obviously they are not paintings, but macro photographs for my “Lacer / Actions” project.

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.
