MACRO PHOTO #30 / HERE IS THE LAST CARD: CRACKS (AS MAPS) ON THE GHOST BUS

CARD # 4

“I see with an eye that feels, I feel with a hand that sees” (J. W. Von Goethe).

A few years ago, the images of my artistic project “Lacer/actions” were used to offer groups of people a sort of psychological game, in order to provoke thoughts, comments, emotions, moods. I must say that, from what I was told, the results were surprising. No, it was not a Rorschach test, but my macro photographs simply stimulated personal and collective stimuli, ideas, feelings and memories.

To tell the truth, this did not surprise me, and it still does not surprise me. All this, in fact, was and is at the origin of my research activity concerning everything that is part of the process of decomposition of matter and materials: paper, glues, natural corrosions, scratches and cracks, industrial stuff… These images strike, above all, above all myself. Therefore, it is understandable that they then also reach the hearts and minds of others. They are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us. That world that often we do not perceive or observe. A world which can reveal something about what we feel inside…

Some interesting facts are demonstrated by the same workshops that, in some schools, are promoted bringing the kids to “play” with the images I made. It is a fun game, which pushes creativity and the desire to express oneself, telling oneself with words, talking about shapes and colors. Yes, pure chromotherapy.

It is a special game, which I like to propose, in this month of June 2020. Every day, here on my Blog, you will find an image, in the form of a card: 30 cards for a month. This is the last one: the 30th. I propose an instrument, a means. You can add the rest yourself in terms of thoughts, moods, questions, reactions, ideas, moods. So play your game. And may the creativity be with you!

5 CARDS FROM “THE GHOST BUS”

DSCN7562 (640x480) (640x480)Also the 30th and last card comes from The Ghost Bus project, promoted in Nottingham (UK) with ACT Group (founded by Marysia Zipser) and Bartons Garage: “A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood”. It is the picture-symbol of the whole project. I discovered the Ghost Bus in Beeston, at  Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars. I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the   “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. So, I took lot of macro photos around and inside the “ghost bus”… So, we began this wonderful “visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood“. The project includes events, short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection of canvases and much more.

“Vedo con un occhio che sente, sento con una mano che vede”. J.W.Von Goethe

Qualche anno fa, le immagini del mio progetto artistico “Lacer/azioni” vennero utilizzate per proporre a gruppi di persone una sorta di gioco psicologico, al fine di provocare pensieri, commenti, emozioni, stati d’animo. Devo dire che, da quanto mi riferirono, i risultati furono sorprendenti. No, non era un test alla Rorschach, ma semplicemente le mie macro fotografie andavano a suscitare stimoli, idee, sensazioni e ricordi personali e collettivi. La cosa, a dir la verità, non mi sorprese, e non mi sorprende tuttora. Tutto ciò, infatti, era ed è all’origine di questa mia attività di ricerca riguardante tutto ciò che fa parte del processo di decomposizione della materia e dei materiali. Queste immagini colpiscono, prima di tutti, soprattutto me stesso. Dunque, è comprensibile che poi arrivino anche al cuore e alla mente degli altri. Lo dimostrano anche gli stessi laboratori che, in alcune scuole, sono stati organizzati portando i ragazzi a “giocare” con le immagini da me realizzate.

E’ un gioco divertente, che spinge la creatività e la voglia di di esprimersi, raccontandosi con le parole oppure con altre immagini. Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!

“THE GHOST BUS”: BBC RADIO TELLS THE SAGA IN “LETTER FROM BEESTON”

Letter from Beeston by Marysia Zipser, broadcasted on BBC Radio Nottingham, on May 20, 2020. Marysia presents “The Ghost Bus: Roberto Alborghetti in the Land of Robin Hood”. A wonderful story, a fantastic visual adventure.

*

THE GHOST BUS: ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI FROM ITALY TO THE LAND OF ROBIN HOOD

BY MARYSIA ZIPSER

(Text brodcasted on BBC Radio on May 20, 2020)

In October 2014, Roberto Alborghetti came to Beeston for the first time. We had ‘met’ on LinkedIn earlier that year – the world’s business networking platform. I loved his posts and, in particular, his visual art project called Lacer/Actions.

He transforms and turns pictures of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches, and deteriorations, into “art subjects”. His whole concept is “making art” from industrial de-construction-ism, caught by camera, macro scale. He captures the randomness, letting the picture tell the story, and documents the reality. He doesn’t change what he sees. Nothing is manipulated.

I asked Roberto that I would like to feature him and his work at my second Art-Culture-Tourism networking evening in March called “Cultures Crossing”, by showing his artworks on screen. He was delighted, and my event at The Lace Mill certainly was Vay-Nee Vee-Dee Vee-Chee “Veni, Vidi, Vici”. It brought European press coverage all thanks to Roberto’s journalist efforts.

A few months later, Roberto contacted me to say he was visiting London friends and could he come to Beeston to see me for several hours before he went back to Italy. I said yes, of course.

Prior to his proposed visit, I had researched further into his background, and found out that besides being an Italian ‘Pulitzer’ award-winning journalist and best selling author, he was also the official biographer to Pope Francis. And, he had just published his second volume on him, called “My Life is an Arrow”. So, I thought, I wonder if Nottingham’s official Robin Hood, Tim Pollard, who happens to live in Beeston, would be free for a photo shoot with Roberto. Tim gladly accepted.

So the day came when I met Roberto from Beeston railway station and brought him to Chilwell High Road. He and Tim got on famously and I photographed them together at Chilwell Creative Corner and then walked them up to Barton’s head office.

Simon Barton greeted us and steered us into the old garage walking through his office, as though left in a time warp. I have always loved the Barton’s historic building and the events Simon and his sons have staged there. I knew Roberto would be hooked.

I was not mistaken. In fact, he disappeared totally among the old Barton buses, vintage cars, vans and bicycles arrayed over the large expanse of the docking sheds. It is a transport enthusiast’s Valhalla. While Simon, Tim and I chatted, Roberto was taking his macro photos of the old vehicles cocooning him. He was transported back in time. The Robin Hood marque on the side chasses of the red buses proved excellent photo backdrops for them together.

Then, he chanced upon the Ghost Bus, a 1956 URR Reliance, which had been rescued from a Suffolk field…after 20 years of slumber. When it was time to go, I called out to Roberto. He excitedly walked back to us with a smile. We said our grateful goodbyes and entered into the street’s bright daylight.

Roberto followed and called out, “Marisha, I know what I am going to dooo!” “I’m going to make a film about The Ghost Bus!”. And so in March 2015, Roberto returned to Bartons to premiere his short film at The Ghost Bus Show. The journey and Ghost Bus Saga had begun. And the rest, as they say, is history.

THAT RUSTY “GHOST BUS” IS A PIECE OF HISTORY OF ENGLISH PUBLIC TRANSPORT

“The Ghost Bus” is back in the Land Of Robin Hood… Don’t miss the special event on next Wednesday June 5, 2019, from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ, promoted by ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. This story began in Beeston-Nottingham in October 2014, when I spent some hours in Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.

I  was really impressed by one of the oldest buses,  the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the  “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen (above: the original movie).  

So, I took lot of photos around that old bus and then I began to create for my  “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials. The whole project consist of 3 short movies (included “Land Rover Mapping”) only for public performances. 

The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home. 

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)

A SPECIAL “GHOST BUS” EVENT AT THE GALLERY (WED. JUNE 5) IN BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM, UK

TheGhostBus2019_n

Guest Writer: MARYSIA ZIPSER, Founder of ACT Group

Roberto Alborghetti, the official biographer to Pope Francis, visual artist, best selling author and award-winning environmental journalist, is returning to Beeston, Nottingham next month.

For one evening Roberto Alborghetti will be on stage sharing his fascinating stories which span secrets from the Vatican kitchens in Rome to how a decaying old vehicle in a former bus garage in Beeston inspired his film, The Ghost Bus.

An audience from across the country is gathering on Wednesday evening June 5th to hear Roberto talk about what inspires him and how art is actually lurking around each and every corner of our day to day lives if only we took the time to observe it.

Nostalgia for 1950’s coach tours, the passage of time and a sense of homecoming has created this enduring legacy of the Ghost Bus project.

This was itself originally inspired by close observation by Roberto of a long-preserved historic coach in Bartons’ Docking Shops, buildings which currently house an unusual and much-loved events space. These elements make this ‘In Conversation with’ evening a very special proposition.

The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home.

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)

“… Since the moment we started to put online some pictures, flyers, cards series and video trailers, a lot of people across the world have been expressing, thinking and commenting on the Ghost Bus project. This is the power of visual arts and musical arts. This is the wonder of a family history, the Bartons. This is the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.” (Roberto Alborghetti)

THE GHOST BUS IS BACK IN THE LAND OF ROBIN HOOD!

GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER – FOUNDER OF ACT GROUP

A visual arts creation by Roberto Alborghetti developed from his “Lacer/actions” project, which concerns realistic images (macro photography not manipulated) of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials.

Roberto says, “While touring Bartons garage in Chilwell, Nottingham (in October 2014) I chanced upon classic vehicles including ‘The Ghost Bus’, a 1956 URR 865 Reliance, which had spent 20 years slumbering in an open field in Suffolk.”

The Ghost Bus ‘Roads’ Project consists of two 14 minute films for public performance; “The Ghost Bus” and “Land Rover Mapping”.  Each has a short film trailer which can be viewed “Can you believe that this art is from an old bus?” and “Can you believe that this art from an old Land Rover?”  In addition he has produced 4 related short videos of macro images taken around Beeston and on Nottingham’s streets: Ghost Bus Seaside Town with music by Simon, Richard, James and Tom Barton Colours of Nottingham Streets to “Can I think of Love” a song by Jeanie Barton Images of Beeston Streets ‘like blossom’ accompanied by “Soon” a song by Jeanie Barton Beeston Rylands – a short film along the Canalside

These are available to view together on a YouTube playlist   http://www.artculturetourism.co.uk/blog/land-rover-mapping-electronic-press-kit-epk

The Ghost Bus Project exhibits the power of combining visual and musical arts; the wonder of family history (the Barton family firm was for a time the largest independent bus operator in the world) and the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.  It encourages us to take the time to look more closely at our surroundings and discover the stories our environment can tell us.

This visual arts film project is now touring! Next stop: in Beeston and Nottingham again, at the beginning of June 2019 (5-8). Let’s get on The Ghost Bus!

THE “GHOST BUS PROJECT” IN GIF: COLORS FROM A VINTAGE VEHICLE (NOTTINGHAM, UK)

theghostbusgif

Can you believe that this art is from an old bus?“… The few pictures you see in this gif are not paintings, but simply photos I took in Beeston, Nottingham (UK) around an old bus at the garage of Bartons family. They are part of “The Ghost Bus Project” that I have brought forward in collaboration with Bartons Plc and its owner Simon Barton, ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. It all started in October 2014 when Marysia Zipser took me to  Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.

 I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses,  the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the   “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. It was another great reason to establish a collaboration building a bridge  between the Land of Robin Hood and Italy…

So, I began to work and create on the “ghost bus” for my “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials. The project consisted of two short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and special events that took place in Beston, Chilwell, Nottingham and in Tuscany (Mount Amiata, Siena).
