STREAMS OF COLORS: IMAGE #5 FROM “THE SPRING WINGS” LACER/ACTIONS SERIES

 

Till next sunday April 1, I’m glad to share a special preview of a seven images series that I titled “The Spring Wings”. The whole series will be followed and concluded by a videoclip in which I’ll show a “live view” of that incredibile billboard from which I’ve made my artworks.

I think it’s one of the most astonishing torn posters I ever seen so far during my long research about ripped ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. The various sections of the torn poster reminded me suggestions about springtime colors…as we may see also in the 4th image of the series.

ABOUT MY “LACER/ACTIONS ART PROJECT”

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 35.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think 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. In October 2010 I participated to “Parallax AF” in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…

MOONLIT SKY:THE FIRST “HAIGA+LACER/ACTIONS” BY JOSHUA SELLERS AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Moonlit sky

quivering crepe myrtles

et their shadows

*

Cielo dal chiaro di luna

tremolanti mirti crespi

e le loro ombre

*

Ciel au clair de lune

des tremblants myrtes crépus

et leurs ombres

*

Ciel al claro de luna

tremolantes mirtos crespos

y sus sombras

This is a new collaboration between Joshua Sellers (Arkansas, Usa) and Roberto Alborghetti (Italy) after the “Linger” videoclip. We present an unpublished series of four images in which Joshua Sellers’s Haiga meet Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions Artworks (realistic images of torn posters and urban “signs”). Poetry and visual Art for a fascinating trip through imagination and states of mind. Colors and emotions, to discover in a slowly way, by the heart side. (To be continued…)

 ABOUT HAIGA

Haiga is a style of Japanese painting based on the aesthetics of haikai, from which haiku poetry derives, which often accompanied such poems in a single piece. Like the poetic forms it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that “since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was… a natural activity.”

Just as haiku often internally juxtapose two images, haiga may also contain a juxtaposition between the haiku itself and the art work. The art work does not necessarily directly represent the images presented in the haiku. Stylistically, haiga vary widely based on the preferences and training of the individual painter, but generally show influences of formal Kanō school painting, minimalist Zen painting, and Ōtsu-e, while sharing much of the aesthetic attitudes of the nanga tradition. Some were reproduced as woodblock prints. The subjects painted likewise vary widely, but are generally elements mentioned in the calligraphy, or poetic images which add meaning or depth to that expressed by the poem.

Here, Haiga verses meet for the first time the abstract language of realistic images as “Lacer/actions” arts.  


ABOUT JOSHUA SELLERS

Joshua Sellers has attended the University of Louisiana at Monroe studying music composition.  Over the years, Joshua has worked as a performer, songwriter, producer, engineer, DJ and musical collaborator in classical, rock, folk, jazz, avant-garde, electronica and ambient music.  As a member of the pop-rock duo Joker, Joshua released the album Homecoming in 2009.

In addition to musical projects, Joshua Sellers has been given an arts grant by the state of Louisiana for a poetry reading at the Masur Museum of Art (1996).  Joshua has also been a co-editor of Hart Beats, a journal of philosophy and spirituality published in Monroe (1996-1998).
Joshua has long been fascinated with the sound textures.  As a child, he would play with tape recorders, altering the tape speed or running the tape in reverse.  Joshua Sellers: “I discovered that you could use a recording device not simply to document sound, but to create unique sounds never heard before.”

Reviving his interest in these childhood experiments, Joshua first began recording ambient music under the pseudonym Murmur in 2003.  Rather than rely on the latest state-of-the-art synthesisers, Joshua uses found sounds, toy keyboards, electric guitars and shakuhachi as sound sources.
Joshua Sellers: “In music, we place traditional musical elements like rhythm, melody and harmony in the foreground and so we tend to not notice the actual texture as much.  In my music, that’s a perception I want to reverse.”
In 2010, Joshua Sellers completed his first full-length album of ambient music, Amniosis.  A new EP, State of Flux, is due to be released later in 2011, followed by a large-scale work, Elemental. Joshua Sellers: “I like to think of my pieces as enigmatic abstract icons, each providing a quiet meditative space and luminous presence of its own.”

Joshua Sellers currently lives in West Memphis, Arkansas, with future plans to emigrate to New Zealand.

He is the unique Italian reporter who received the European Award for Environmental Reporting, the so called European “Pulitzer” about Environmental Reporting (1992, European Parliament, Strasbourg).

He created “LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project concerning in a research about torn posters and urban “signs” taken from city walls. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles, or scanned in a videoclip, the details of torn advertisings give new life to paper wastes.

In 2009, he published a “booklet-portfolio” – “Lacer/actions, Pics of torn (publi)city – gathering a selection of 40 pictures chosen among 30.000 pics that Roberto Alborghetti took during his research about torn (publi)city. In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited his show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio International Airport). Roberto Alborghetti’s pics are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perception (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests. Alborghetti is also invited to lead workshops about his artworks.

In October 2011, he participated at Parallax Art Fair in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall). He showed 3 artworks (mixed media/canvas): “Nine Eleven/New York 2001, Victims & Martyrs, The Blood Track #2”, “As fast running water…”, “I don’t like to stand still”. The famous “The Huffington Post” (September 2011) wrote about his artwork devoted to Nine Eleven Fallen; article by dr. Srini Pillay, Psychiatrist, Harvard clinician, brain imaging researcher, executive coach, author (Life Unlocked, The Science behind the Law of Attraction, Your Brain and Business: the Neuroscience of the Great Leaders).

One of his recent works was selected to be part of the new Contemporary Art Museum projected and created in in Italy (Marche region) by the artist Pasquale Martini. He created more than 40 videoclips posted at his YouTube channel.

A “BULWARK DESIGN” TOUCH FOR MY “LACER/ACTIONS” ON SHOW AT PARALLAX AF IN LONDON

 

 The three “Lacer/actions” artworks on show in London at Parallax AF (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall) are presented to visitors in a dimension that is not visible through the pictures posted on the web. In fact, only a live view enables the eyes to detect a particular feature. That is, some type material “elements” – whose transparency is absolute – which have been deposited in some areas of the image on canvas.

It’s the result of the positive collaboration and experimentation that I have carried out with Bulwark Design, of the SRS group in Fiorano Modenese (Italy). I had the way to know the activities of Bulwark in design and in ceramics, stones, glass and other materials manufacture. Being “Lacer/actions” an open project – that communicates and engages with the possible evolutions of the most innovative researches and applications – I was very glad to work and to experiment on the canvases on exhibition for the London event. Thanks to Simona Malagoli, area manager, and to Beppe Cesana, decorator and artist (he is also an accomplished photographer: see the pictures he took in plagued areas of the former Yugoslavia, carried around in a series of exhibitions) we worked to make the three images even more mysterious and suggestive (with the assistance of Valeria and Paola).

I repeat: the live view only is able to reveal the outcome of this trial, which led on canvases areas some streams of brightness and of tri-dimensionality. And so, thanks to the Bulwark Design ‘s magic touch” – it must be said – I experienced a further opportunity for the development of my visual expression. Everything is on exhibition at  “Parallax AF” in London (14, 15, 16 October, 2011).

 I thank for the cooperation all the Bulwark Design ‘s team and Corrado Fontanini, founder of SRS in Fiorano Modenese (Modena), a worldwide leading company in the supply of design and engraved silicon rolles, as well as in the production of screens for serigraphic printing and different pronting tools for ceramic; SRS is also based in Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Iran and Egypt, where it operates with the most advanced technologies, producing true art works for our environments and for our daily life.

 UN TOCCO DI “BULWARK DESIGN” PER LE “LACER/AZIONI” ALLA “PARALLAX AF” DI LONDRA

 Le tre opere “Lacer/azioni” esposte a Londra alla Parallax AF (La Galleria, Royale Opera Arcade, Pall Mall) si presentano ai visitatori in una dimensione che non è assolutamente visibile attraverso le immagini pubblicate su web. Infatti, solo una vista dal vivo consente all’occhio umano di rilevare una particolarità. Ossia, alcuni “elementi” di tipo materico – dalla trasparenza assoluta – che sono stati depositati su alcune aree delle tele in esposizione. E’ il frutto, questo, della collaborazione e della positiva sperimentazione che ho attuato con Bulwark Design, del gruppo SRS di Fiorano Modenese.

Avevo avuto modo di conoscerne l’attività ed il campo d’azione nel design e nella lavorazione di ceramiche, pietre, vetro ed altri materiali. Essendo “Lacer/azioni” un progetto aperto, che dialoga e si confronta con le possibili evoluzioni della ricerca e delle applicazioni più innovative – è nata così l’idea di lavorare sulle tele destinate all’evento londinese. Grazie a Simona Malagoli, area manager di Bulwark Design e a Beppe Cesana, decoratore ed artista (è anche un valente fotografo: vedere le immagini scattate nei territori martoriati della ex Jugoslavia, portate in giro anche in una serie di mostre) si è lavorato per rendere ancora più misteriose e suggestive le tre immagini.

Ripeto, solo l’immagine vista dal vivo è in grado di rivelare l’esito di questa sperimentazione, che ha portato sui colori aree di lucentezza e di tri-dimensionalità, anche grazie all’assistenza ed alla perizia di Valeria e Paola (collaboratrici di Beppe). E così, grazie al tocco magico – è il caso di dirlo – di Bulwark Design, ho sperimentato un’ulteriore possibilità di sviluppo e di evoluzione della mia espressione visuale. Il tutto è visibile in anteprima a Londra alla “Parallax AF”, dal 14 al 16 ottobre. Un grazie per la collaborazione agli amici di Bulwark Design e a Corrado Fontanini, fondatore di SRS di Fiorano Modenese, azienda leader nella fornitura di disegni e rulli siliconici incisi, presente anche in Brasile , Spagna, Messico, Iran ed Egitto, dove opera con le più avanzate tecnologie, producendo vere e proprie opere d’arte per gli ambienti della nostra vita quotidiana.

“AND THE CONTAMINATION BECOMES ART”

Mina Cappussi – journalist, writer, editor in chief of the international daily magazine “A World of Italians” and professor at “La Sapienza” Roma 3 University – wrote this article about Roberto Alborghetti’s “Lacer/Actions” artworks:

Roberto Alborghetti choose to silence words and to let the images tell. LaceR/Actions are really unusual images, so far away from common visions. They are not manipulated images, they are natural images.

Alborghetti “spies” advertisings, and all what is ripped, sticked and lacerated paper, mixin’up styles, colors, explicit or subliminal messages. Alborghetti proceeds his research in an ingenious way, re-reading images and messages in the light of superimposition, like a photoshot with a long time exposure, lettin’ flow emotions, sensations, events that contaminate the original scene. And so, the contamination becomes art, and we have the way to discover new points of view and observation, settin’ free one mind of prejudices and conventional thoughts.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s laceR/Actions are movement and action that born from breaking rules and plans, they are pure art enclosed inside paper fragments, layed down as a fecund seed on the world walls.

ART AND DESIGN FOR DAILY LIFE

Visit to the beautiful Showrooms of SRS and Bulwark Design (in Fiorano Modenese, Modena, Italy) founded by Corrado Fontanini. Marble, ceramic and wood under the sign of creativity.

 

 Ceramics drawings. Marbles with an incredible range of designs. Resins that seem to come alive. Artistic wood planks. Ladies and gentlemen, Welcome to the world in which daily materials and objects become art. At Fiorano Modenese (Modena), in the heart of the worldwide recognized Ceramics District, we have the way to visit SRS factory, nearly 35 years of activity in the field of screen printing, founded by Corrado Fontanini. In a series of three beautiful showrooms, the visitors – and of course the buyers – are able to make a journey in creativity, approaching that hard work that has made Italy great in the world.

It’ s a real feast for eyes and mind to see, in these showrooms, the most recent productions of SRS, global provider of silicon etched designs and rollers. The same halls – so stylish and well set up – are true art exhibitions, where you can see the latest SRS production. Slabs of marble, wooden planks and ceramic tiles and panels – designed and manufactured for each type of environment, for domestic dwellings, offices, studios and halls – are offered in the beauty of shapes and materials, becoming objects and art expression. Here you have the perception how everyday objects and materials may make more beautiful and comfortable our life.

 

The SRS Showrooms are truly the charming and engaging emblem of what the company set up by Corrado Fontanini is expressing in the research and production. Based also in Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Iran and Egypt, SRS works with a team of designers, using the latest technology (I saw a giant scanner to work large format materials) producing true artworks. And no wonder if people from all over the world, visiting showrooms in Fiorano Modenese, open their eyes and feel amazed.

The surprise continues visiting Bulwark Design, the SRS brand specialized in resin manufacture. Bulward projects and carries out a line of products that really change the look to floors, rooms, objects and different spaces. Simona Malagoli, Bulwark Area Manager, says me that the core of Fiorano companys is to make beautiful and artistic all what in which we live in.

The fields of application are endless. Bulwark is an award-winning design, which matches the traditional materials (stone, marble, wood, glass and so on) with art, fashion and aesthetics values, as showed by Oscar and Beppe, artists-decorators. Bulwark Design is research too: Lorenzo, engineer, is now working on pigments and colors. The desire for innovation and creativity suggested to Corrado Fontanini – he also showed me a small part of his extraordinary collection of photos from places around the world – to create an art gallery, that ‘ll be established beside SRS factory in Fiorano Modenese. It’s a challenge that ‘ll open a new “perspective” on the contemporary art. Lovers of beauty and “the next things” are warned!

ARTE E DESIGN PER LA VITA QUOTIDIANA

Visita ai bellissimi Showroms della SRS e di Bulwark Design a Fiorano Modenese (Modena), fondati da Corrado Fontanini. Marmo, ceramica, legno prendono vita e nel segno della creatività.

 

 

Ceramiche disegnate. Marmi che presentano una gamma incredibile di disegni. Resine che sembrano prendere vita. Tavole di legno lavorate. Signore e signori, Benvenuti nel mondo del lavoro quotidiano che diventa arte. A Fiorano Modenese (Modena), nel cuore del Distretto della Ceramica mondialmente riconosciuto, opera la SRS: quasi 35 anni di attività nel campo della serigrafia, fondata da Corrado Fontanini. In una serie di tre bellissimi Showrooms, il visitore – ed ovviamente il compratore – hanno la possibilità di compiere un viaggio nella creatività e nella laboriosità che ha reso l’Italia grande nel mondo.

E’ un vero piacere per gli occhi e per la mente ammirare, in queste sale, le produzioni più recenti di SRS, che è leader nella fornitura di disegni e rulli siliconici incisi. Le stesse sale, per il gusto e lo stile con cui sono state allestite, sono vere e poprie esposizioni di arte, dove è possibile ammirare le più recenti novità. Lastre di marmo, tavole di legno e pannelli di ceramica – ideati e realizzati per ogni tipo di ambiente, per le abitazioni domestiche come per le sedi di uffici, studi e società – si offrono nella bellezza delle lavorazioni e delle forme, diventando oggetti ed espressione di quella che è l’arte, appunto, del quotidiano, degli oggetti e dei materiali che fanno bella e confortevole il nostro contesto di vita.

Gli Shoroom di SRS sono davvero l’emblema, suggestivo ed esteticamente coinvolgente, di ciò che la società creata da Corrado Fontanini sta esprimendo nella ricerca e nella produzione. Presente in Brasile (con tre sedi, da più di vent’anni), Spagna, Messico, Iran ed Egitto, SRS opera con una equipe di designer che, con l’utilizzo delle più avanzate tecnologie – abbiamo visto un mega scanner che fa meraviglie nel “lavorare” la materia su grande formato – produce vere e proprie opere d’arte. E non c’è da stupirsi dunque se gente da tutto il mondo, visitando gli showrooms di Fiorano Modenese, spalanca gli occhi e si lascia andare ad espressioni di meraviglia.

La sorpresa continua anche nell’avvicinare l’attività di Bulwark design – il brand di SRS specializzato nella lavorazione delle resine – dove è studiata e realizzata una linea di prodotti che cambiano davvero l’immagine a pavimenti, rivestimenti, oggetti e complementi d’arredo, riempiendo di unicità gli spazi del proprio vivere, da quelli domestici a quelli di lavoro. Come sottolinea Simona Malagoli, Area Manager di Bulwark, il cuore dell’attività dell’azienda di Fiorano è rendere bello ed artistico gli ambienti che abitiamo.

I campi di applicazione sono infiniti. E Bulwark è un design vincente, che sa coniugare la tradizione dei materiali (pietra, marmi, legno, vetro e cosi via) con l’efficacia del linguaggio dell’arte e dell’estetica più raffinata, come è dimostrato dai lavori eseguiti da Beppe ed Oscar, decoratori e veri artisti. E senza dimenticare la ricerca: Lorenzo, ingegnere, sta ad esempio lavorando sui pigmenti e le loro reazioni ai colori. La voglia di innovazione e l’estro di Corrado Fontanini – che mi ha pure mostrato una minima parte della sua straordinaria collezione di fotografie da tutto il mondo – lo hanno spinto alla creazione di una galleria d’arte, che verrà presto creata nel complesso della SRS di Fiorano Modenese. Una sfida che aprirà un nuovo “punto di vista” sulle espressioni artistiche della contemporaneità. Amanti del bello e del nuovo, siete avvertiti.

“THESE RE-CREATIONS ARE REAL POP ART AVANT-GARDE”

This is the review about my artworks “LACER/ACTIONS” recently wrote by a famous Italian critic, Lino Lazzari, journalist, writer, one of the historic leaders of art communication in Italy, author of essays and studies, including the monumental books about “Accademia Carrara”.

BY LINO LAZZARI

One of the fundamental principles of physics says: “In nature nothing is created, nothing is destroyed”. “Nothing is created” because each reality that is invented by men, comes from a pre-existing reality and “nothing is destroyed” because a reality defined as “destroyed” or ” consumed” it is actually “re-created” or converted, buying a whole new identity.

And that is what Roberto Alborghetti can do with posters that appear on walls or on the expositive spaces in the streets of our cities, “destroyed” by the time, or torn by unknown. The interest for those posters that, while being exhibited in public, clearly appeared, no longer exists. There remain only shreds of paper, colourful images of which you can’t “read” anything of the advertisement that was announced before, meaningless “things” to be thrown in the incinerator.

Roberto Alborghetti, however with a surprising insight, thought to give those images a new identity, to transform them into other images, in a word, to re-create them. But for which purpose?

Easy for him, but unimaginable for us.

The purpose of this “re-creative” act was that to snap what remained of those “pieces” and, perhaps, drawing meaningful “artistic subjects.” Impractical project? Not at all. Looking carefully at these completely insignificant remainders, it’s possible to notice that these remainders are really “artistic subjects” with precise, new messages, completely different from the original and from those which had the poster when it had been posted up. Saying that Roberto Alborghetti has managed to do all this, is simple observation.

Those “tears” of posters, “re-created” by Roberto Alborghetti, have become true artist’s paintings: at first glance they can be attributed to contemporary avant-garde painters, with authentic and precise messages on which our attention should linger. The observers may see in these paintings blue skies and seas, beautiful sunrises and sunsets: the scenery would call “bucolic” and so on. All this with a clear and understandable “language”.

As described here, can all this be defined as artistic expression? I would say so. In fact “Pop Art” has done the same, so it isn’t difficult to associate the pictures of Roberto Alborghetti to the real ‘”Pop Art”. There is both the “creativity” of the artist and his sensitivity to the beauty of chromatic variations, his emotions for those images which really lead to the marvellous vision of new reality “ri-created” by a lively fantasy and a genuine poetic feeling that can’t leave nobody indifferent. Visual art is all that, thanks to the imprinted images on canvas or on sculptures, can arouse feelings in a context of values that can be deeply appreciated.

For what concerns the technical side, it requires a just settlement of the spaces (we refer in particular to painting), a chromatic, harmonious “game” or a balanced structural composition, an image that is not static but, on the contrary, in continuous movement. The “paintings” by Roberto Alborghetti have all these features, so the great appreciation from the artistic critique goes to this artist.

We are confident that Roberto Alborghetti will continue this artistic “journey” because he doesn’t lack the artistic ability. And the successes obtained with the presentation of his works in several shows will continue to occur. His paintings deserve attention: from those “torn pieces” of billboards, now “re-created”, comes an authentic message of poetry, of serenity, of admiration for everything that objectivity can present as beautiful and artistic. The material used to create a work of art and to convey positive messages of humanity isn’t as important as the ability to use “tears” of coloured paper to exalt the features of a reality that becomes a striking, persuasive image for what concerns the dictates of visual art.

Roberto Alborghetti has given evidence.

Lino Lazzari

RIPPED COLORS OF “LACER/ACTIONS”

I’m Roberto Alborghetti, journalist, writer, photographer and visual artist. It has been a long time that I works on my project named “Lacer/Actions”, a research concerning ripped advertisings, torn papers and torn posters. I have taken thousands of pictures from city walls all over the world. Abstract and visionary images become art works, reproduced on canvas or other materials (textiles, paper, glass…) I think it’s a new “dimension of colors” that invites us to discover that in the reality “we may see things that we don’t even imagine”. In fact we find it difficult to think that behind faded and torn messages there may still be “something” to be seen or discovered. But these lacerated images continue to be a mirror of the talking city. For me, 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 of my “Lacer/Actions” artworks were shown in a booklet-portfolio that collects a very little selection of the images (about 30.000) that I took till…today. I’m also invited to lead workshops about my artworks. In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my showcase “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport). My artworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perception (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests.

I’m here, to share my adventure with you…

Sono Roberto Alborghetti, giornalista professionista, autore di saggi e biografie, fotografo, artista visuale. Ho creato il progetto “LACER/AZIONI”. Da anni ho l’hobby di “catturare”, in giro per il mondo, particolari e dettagli dell’apparente caos della carta lacerata delle affissioni. Ho raccolto migliaia di immagini che giocano a contaminarsi con stili, forme ed espressioni diversi. Trasferiti su tele, riprodotti su litografia o scansionati in un videoclip, i particolari delle lacerazioni pubblicitarie riprendono nuova vita e ragione di essere. Nel 2009 ho pubblicato un album-portfolio che raccoglie una ristretta selezione delle immagini – finora oltre 30.000 – impressionate in giro per il mondo nel corso della mia  ricerca dedicata ai particolari di quella che, appunto, chiamo la (pubbli)città strappata. L’attività collegata a questo progetto, mi ha visto tenere diversi workshops nelle scuole. Le immagini hanno inoltre suggerito la sperimentazione di test kinesiologici sugli effetti sensoriali e sinestetici. Nel luglio 2010 ho tenuto una mostra presso Oriocenter (Aeroporto di Bergamo Orio al Serio) visitata da oltre trentamila persone. Il tema dell’esposizione: “Acqua,Terra, Fuoco, Aria”. LACER/AZIONI è condiviso sul web attraverso MySpace, Artslant, Facebook, YouTube, BlipTv, WordPress. In una serie di videoclip – realizzati con il contributo musicale di artisti emergenti – il linguaggio delle immagini si fonde con quello della musica, originando a sua volta nuovi flussi e frammenti sonori e visivi. Una mia tela – intitolata “C’è del caos, ma con punto focale”, 42 x 62 cm – è stata scelta per il  nascente Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Mercatello sul Metauro (PU).
