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!

NOTTINGHAM (UK) / THE UNIVERSITY PARK CAMPUS: 300 ACRES OF A GREEN AND REFLECTIVE PLACE

© Roberto Alborghetti

© Roberto Alborghetti

On my most recent visit to Robin Hood’s Land for The Ghost Bus project developments, Marysia Zipser and Caron-Jane Lyon accompanied me to the Lakeside Arts Center for a series of meetings. It was a pleasant surprise for me to immerse myself in the atmosphere of the University Park Campus, a real oasis of greenery, where relaxation, tranquility and a great variety of trees and flowers reign. Although the day was not sunny, the nature of the park offered a wonderful show, including the squirrels and the little ducks that you crossed on the walk. The small lake mirrored the greenery around it, offering priceless visual glimpses, which I tried to stop in the photographs, some of which are presented in the photo gallery.

University Park is The University of Nottingham’s largest campus at 300 acres. Part of the University since 1929, the campus is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive in the country. Set in extensive greenery and around a lake, University Park is the focus of life for students, staff and visitors. Conveniently located only two miles from the city centre, the campus contains period buildings, modern state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, 12 halls of residence (accommodating over 3,000 students), several award-winning buildings, a conference and exhibition centre, sports facilities and the Lakeside Arts CentreThe hub of student life is the Portland Building, which houses the Students’Union, the Student Support Centre, as well as shops, banks, bars and restaurants.

Parks and gardens in the University’s landscaped settings which feature: long-established woodland, contemporary gardens, the Millennium Garden, a quiet, reflective place in which to escape the hustle and bustle of campus life. The campus has been a Civic Trust Green Flag Award Winner every year since 2003, the only university campus to achieve this status.

Visit Estates website for more information about the grounds.

Nella mia più recente visita nella Terra di Robin Hood per gli sviluppi del progetto The Ghost Bus, Marysia Zipser e Caron Jane Lyon mi hanno accompagnato al Lakeside Arts Centre per una serie di incontri. E’ stata per me una piacevole sorpresa immergermi nell’atmosfera dell’University Park Campus, una vera e propria oasi di verde, dove regnano relax, tranquillità ed una grande varietà di alberi e di fiori. Benchè la giornata non fosse soleggiata, la natura del Parco ha offerto un suo meraviglioso spettacolo, compresi gli scoiattoli e le paperelle che incrociavi nella passeggiata. Il piccolo lago rispecchiava il verde attorno, offrendo degli impagabili scorci visivi, che ho cercato di fermare nelle fotografie, alcune delle quali sono presentate nella fotogalleria.

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.
