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.

RETROSPECTIVE: ADVERTISING POSTERS ON BILLBOARD AND THEIR PROCESS OF CHANGE (VIDEO, 2010)

“Lacer/actions – Lacer/azioni” was made exactly 10 years ago: in March  2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. In the video we see some of the macro photographic images I took around advertising posters billboard. I have always been impressed and fascinated by the way in which publicity posters undergo a natural process of changethe atmosphere corrodes them, the wind tears and cuts them, the rain changes them into different colors and finally they are superimposed with other posters.

Yes, they’re not paintings, but “Lacer/actions”!

SIGNS OF OUR TIMES / MACRO PHOTOS OF A DISFIGURED WASTEBIN

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.

RUGS, DUST, GLUE AND PAPER: MYSTERIOUS CODES ON THE CITY WALLS

© Roberto Alborghetti

Cities reveal themselves also through random images of ripped and decomposed publicity posters and natural decompositions we may see along the streets. In this gallery I gathered some macro photos I took in Amsterdam, the so called “Venice of Northern Europe”. Rugs, papers, glue, dust, spray colors residuals and other materials mixed with torn posters gave origin to some fascinating and even disquieting scenes, where light and dark seem to create an obscure dimension or some indecipherable codes… It’s just the world of Lacer/actions…

THE AMAZING IMPERFECTION OF THE WORLD AROUND US: 12 ABSTRACT PHOTOS FROM ROME

  © Roberto Alborghetti 

 

These pictures aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us. They are photos: I took them in Rome on walls, advertising billboards, gates, wastebins… Free abstract and informal art along the streets.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches and urban/street signs. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 120.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.
