MACRO PHOTOS FOR “THE WORLD WATER DAY” (MARCH 22): THE SHAPES OF SEA WATER

A video to celebrate the World Water Day 2020, on 22 March.  The pictures of the video are not paintings or digitally made compositions, but abstract and macro photos that I took for my project-research “Lacer/actions” around an old boat – and its hull – in Torre a  Mare, beautiful seaside place in Apulia, Italy.

World Water Day 2020, on 22 March, is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked. Adapting to the water effects of climate change will protect health and save lives. Using water more efficiently will reduce greenhouse gases. We cannot afford to wait.Everyone has a role to play.

These are not modern art paintings or pop art works. They are just macro and abstract photos of details of a disfigured wastebin, in Milan… The pictures are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 120.000 photos taken across the world.
“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 pictures above.

RETROSPECTIVE: BLUE TRACKS / TRACCE BLU (VIDEO, 2010)

“Blue Tracks / Tracce Blu” was made exactly 10 years ago: in January 2010. 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. This is another video clip for “Lacer/actions” project. The dominant color of these images is blue  And the tears and decomposition of paper often take the form of water, rain, ice and sky.

Interested in these images in exclusive and original copies? Please contact:  funtasyeditrice@gmail.com

“Tracce Blu” è stato realizzato 10 anni fa, nel gennaio 2010. 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 decomposti. Il colore dominante di queste immagini è il blu. E gli strappi e la decomposizione della carta assumono spesso la forma di pioggia, cieli, acqua e ghiaccio…

THE FOUR SEASONS IN LACER/ACTIONS: WINTER #4

© Roberto Alborghetti

Each season has its colors. But what colors does winter have? Easy to answer, just look around … The torn advertising posters on billboards also have winter colors. So, through my macro photos  I tried to imagine a color palette … Yes, trails of snow and ice, in exclusive for my LaceR/Actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. 

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some of the 120.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us. A videoclip will follow very soon.

Ogni stagione ha i suoi colori. Ma che colori ha l’inverno? Facile rispondere, basta del resto guardarsi attorno… Anche i manifesti strappati della pubblicità hanno colori invernali. Ho quindi provato ad immaginare una tavolozza di colori… Sì, scie di neve e di ghiaccio…
