LIKE A GARDEN IN WINTER…: FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 MACRO PHOTOS

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my photo collection of torn and decomposed publicity posters. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…

RETROSPECTIVE #3: ADVERTISING POSTERS, FIRES AND FLAMES (VIDEO, 2009)

“Fuochi / Fires” was also made exactly 10 years ago: in November, 2009. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. I took some of the macro photographic images of torn advertising posters and mixed them with a track : “Heartbeat” by Justin Raisen.  This is my third video clip for “Lacer/actions” project. The dominant color of these images is red. And the tears and decomposition of paper often take the form of tongues of fire. Advertising posters, fire and flames.

Anche “Fuochi” è stato realizzato 10 anni fa, nel novembre 2009. L’ho creato attraverso la piattaforma Animoto, accettando la sfida di produrre un videoclip di trenta secondi di durata massima. Ho preso alcune delle immagini fotografiche macro di manifesti pubblicitari strappati e li ho “mescolate” con il brano “Heartbeat” di Justin Raisen. Il colore dominante di queste immagini è il rosso. E gli strappi e la decomposizione della carta assumono spesso la forma delle lingue di fuoco.

 

 

RETROSPECTIVE #1 / MY FIRST VIDEOCLIP, TEN YEARS AGO…

This is “Signs” (Segni).  It’s my first video clip made with Animoto, 10 years ago, in 2009. A few seconds, not even 30, to present some of the macro images I had taken around the billboards of advertising posters. There is obviously a bit of nostalgia in seeing this first video again, for my “Lacer/actions” project and research. Enjoy it!

E’ il mio primo videoclip realizzato con Animoto. Pochi secondi, nemmeno 30, per presentare alcune delle immagini macro che avevo scattato attorno ai tabelloni dei manifesti pubblicitari. C’è ovviamente un po’ di nostalgia nel rivedere questo primo video. Buona visione!

Cracks & Corrosions like unknown lands… These are abstract photos I recently took in Milan : they refer to pedestrian crossings in an underground car park. They are part of “LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and  decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

THE VIDEO: THE MAGIC OF SCRATCHES ON “CENTRAL WASTE” IN BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM, UK

In Beeston, on the road to Nottingham (UK) you may have the surprise of running into a kind of art installation … Scratches, drawings, traces and lines come to life on the surface of a large yellow waste container (Central Waste). Yes, pure street art, or better: natural art on the street…#realstreetart #naturalstreetart. In the video: some of the many photographs I took around this large “pool” that carries with it the signs of time and human work. The pictures are just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. They are part of “LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings, natural cracks, scratches and urban/industrial tokens. Soundtrack: “The Rain” by Silent Partner.

The previous posts about “Central Waste” container in Beeston gained lot of views and impressions also in my Twitter profile.
