Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, 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 (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

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.

I think the universe of cracks is a really wonderful world… We are surrounded by cracks… We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor and “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection.

In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along Rome streets. Yes, in the macro we can see a lot!

“LAMIAGENDA 2018/2019” IS OUT! A DIARY THAT IS ALSO A DESIGN OBJECT!

LMA 2018 19 (1)

It’s out! And it’s so beautiful! LamiAgenda 2018/2019 is ready! This year’s theme is: “All up for Earth!”. My artwork, “Strati di memoria” (Memory Layers), made with small pieces of waste paper, is the cover and characterizes the entire iconographic part. LamiAgenda, published in Italy by I Quindici, has a square shape, the texts are written in Easy Reading format (ideal for those who are subject to forms of dyslexia) and contains personalized pages made by the same schools. Yes, it’s a small masterpiece of design, starting from the cover, which is in line with the annual theme of the diary, devoted to environmental issues and the commitment that every person must give to improve our quality of life.

Yes, there is an abstract world under our feet … These are some of the images I took in Florence (Italy). They’re macro photography of a disfigured pavement . The pictures 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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!
