Photogallery # 3 about signs, scratches and graffiti from the walls in Rome. They’re not paintings, or digitally made compositions. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: I  collected so far more than 100.000 images. I’m always amazed how the reality goes beyond every imagination…
“LaceR/Actions” is 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 and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

Some more signs, scratches and graffiti from the walls in Rome…  As I usually like to say, they’re not paintings, or digitally made compositions. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: I  collected so far more than 100.000 images. I’m always amazed how the reality goes beyond every imagination…

HOW MUCH GREEN WILL THERE BE IN THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES?

Trump wants less green in the future of US… His withdraw from the Paris agreement still undoubtedly brings risks for the rest of the world. There are lots of possible pathways to the zero-emission global economy needed in the second half of this century to avoid the “severe, widespread and irreversible impacts” warned of by the world’s scientists.

 

 

ITALIAN FLAG AS SEEN ON A PUBLICITY BILLBOARD: VISUAL ART FOR THE ITALIAN REPUBLIC HOLIDAY

White, Red and Green are the colors of the Italian Flag. Here some random pics from my “Lacer/actions” Project: they are a sort of tribute to Italian Republic Holiday (it’s today, June 2). I saw them on a publicity billboard and I was captured by the way the case re-built and re-constructed them.

My “Lacer/actions” project is gathering documentary evidence about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters (on outdoor  advertisings), crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings, industrial tokens. The scenes from the real world are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Lacer/actions and Cracks… We are surrounded by lacerations and cracks. We live in a planet of lacerations cracks. And they may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection and waste materials.

“THE WALLS OF ART”: PRIMARY SCHOOL “MORO” IN MILAN PLAYS WITH “LACER/ACTIONS” PROJECT

Here is the video about the visual art experience faced on Monday, May 29, 2017, by the Fifth Class C of the Primary School “Moro”, at “G.Capponi Institute” in Milan directed by Gabriella Conte (School Manager). Roberto Alborghetti for his “LaceR/Actions” project involved girls and boys in a special experience that guided them in the neighborhood to observe the walls and the streets. Pupils had a photo shooting working on the “macro” technique. With Roberto they selected the pcitures and produced the video.

“The walls of art” put the students – as they have written – in the right condition “to see a different world throughout things : colors and fantasy … Waves, horses, birds, landscapes, distant worlds”. It was a wonderful day to remember, in the context of the initiatives for the March of Legality 2017. Thanks for the collaboration to the teachers G. Petrucci, T.Pilla and E.Poletti and to the School Manager, Gabriella Conte, who – in the wake of the meetings on the “Librofonino” – suggested this creative workshop.

 

“LAMIAGENDA” IS OUT! HERE IS THE FIRST “VISUAL” SCHOOL DIARY WITH EASYREADING FONT!

“LamiAgenda” is out! Quindici just published it in Italy. My artworks – one collage (Lost Words, reproduced on the cover) and seven abstract photos from my “Lacer/actions” Project – constitute the iconographic elements of  the first “visual” school diary”. “LamiAgenda” is all printed in EasyReading font. Internationally, EasyReading is the only font explicitly “dedicated” to dyslexic readers which, subjected to autonomous and independent scientific research on the degree of legibility, has achieved positive results.
