Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project which investigates and explores the incredible dimension of the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings billboards. Since 2009 I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks (yes, cracks are maybe another metaphor of Life, as well as the waste-paper…). All the Cracks pics are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images. So, welcome to Cracks world, where matter is broken but not split…As you can see in this image. This image may look like a painting depicting a sky that has shattered under the blows of human stupidity …Or due to global warming. But more simply it is a macro picture of the cracks on a sign at the Monterotondo train station, Rome.

IMAGINARY ARABESQUES: CORROSIONS AND CRACKS ON A WASTE BASKET (video)

The wear and tear of time, in its unstoppable pace, causes corrosion and cracking. This is what happened to the waste baskets placed in the center of a surprising medieval village, Abbadia San Salvatore, located on Mount Amiata, in the heart of Tuscany. The yellow paint, over the years, has peeled off and corroded, leaving room for imaginary arabesques that the eye of my camera caught at close range.

L’usura del tempo, nel suo inarrestabile incedere, provoca corrosioni e screpolature. Così è capitato ai cestini per i rifiuti collocati nel centro di un sorprendente villaggio medioevale, Abbadia San Salvatore, situato sul monte Amiata, nel cuore della Toscana. La verniciatura gialla, nel corso degli anni, si è scrostata e corrosa, lasciando poi spazio ad immaginari arabeschi che l’occhio della mia fotocamera ha colto a distanza ravvicinata.

 

13th NOVEMBER: WORLD KINDNESS DAY/ LIKE A SILK CARESS ON THE MIND…

© Roberto Alborghetti – Like a Silk Caress on the Mind

Kindness is like a silk caress on the mind … This phrase was suggested to me by the images of the silk scarves produced with the image design of my “Lacer / Actions” project. Today is the World Kindness Day: it is celebrated annually on 13th November. On this day, participants attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness, either as individuals or as organisations. World Kindness Day was first launched in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement, an organisation formed at a 1997 Tokyo conference of like-minded kindness organisations from around the world. There are currently over 28 nations involved in The World Kindness Movement.

RETROSPECTIVE #3: ADVERTISING POSTERS, FIRES AND FLAMES (VIDEO, 2009)

“Fuochi / Fires” was also made exactly 10 years ago: in November, 2009. 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 and mixed them with a track : “Heartbeat” by Justin Raisen.  This is my third video clip for “Lacer/actions” project. The dominant color of these images is red. And the tears and decomposition of paper often take the form of tongues of fire. Advertising posters, fire and flames.

Anche “Fuochi” è stato realizzato 10 anni fa, nel novembre 2009. 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 li ho “mescolate” con il brano “Heartbeat” di Justin Raisen. Il colore dominante di queste immagini è il rosso. E gli strappi e la decomposizione della carta assumono spesso la forma delle lingue di fuoco.

 

 

RETROSPECTIVE #2: MIXED COLORS OF BEETHOVEN (VIDEO, 2009)

“Mixed colors of Beethoven” was also created exactly 10 years ago: in September 13, 2009. 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 and mixed them with an unmistakable music: the universally known “Allegro con brio” from Simphony No.5 by Ludwig Van Beethoven. This is my second video clip for “Lacer/actions” project and it is one of the most viewed on Animoto. It confirmed me that “visuals” always need the colors of the sound.

Anche “Mixed colors of Beethoven” è stato realizzato esattamente 10 anni fa: il 13 settembre 2009. 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 li ho “mescolate” con una musica inconfondibile: l’Allegro con Brio dalla Quinta Sinfonia di Ludwig Van Beethoven. Questo è il mio secondo videoclip. Mi ha confermato che i (miei) “visuals” hanno sempre bisogno dei colori del suono.
