A three silk scarves series are now on sale at “La Bottega di Oscar” / Oscar’s Boutique. They are available in a very special limited-edition and at a special price. The silk scarves designs are  unique: they reproduce details of images concerning torn posters  captured on the cities walls around the world by Italian visual artist and reporter Roberto Alborghetti who had the idea to turn trash into an art subject (his incredible abstract pics are also trasnferred on canvases, lithographs and other materials). 

Roberto Alborghetti created and produced this particular fashion accessory with the assistance and collaboration of the internationally known textile designer Bruno Boggia, who works for the most famous international fashion stylists. Roberto Alborghetti creations have already won consents and attentions throughout the web and from medias; New York blogger Marina Chetner (http://marinachetner.com/) wrote that “Roberto’s torn poster art inspired silk scarves are going to be the next big fashion trend”.

 To buy them, contact: andrea@velar.it or ro.alb@alice.it

This special limited-edition of silk scarves is available on three designs titled: “Shared Moods”, “Nine Eleven, New York 2001”, “Winds of May, ruffle my thoughts”.

IT’S A VERY INDUSTRIAL PICTURE… SNOW, CLOUDS AND PEOPLE ALL SEEM TO DRIFT IN THE SAME DIRECTION

DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTIC HAIGA # 2 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Faded faces stroll

     the walls of layered living.

    Yesterday softens.

*

I saw granite snow

     and touched the oneness.

     Ancient stories freeze.

*

Umbrella walkers

     dot the misty,morning streets.

     Tissue clouds bring snow.

This is the second composition created by fellow blogger, Meredith (healingminds@WordPress.com) for a four composition series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga”. Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (USA) – shared a preview of my most recent images taken from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in the Netherlands and Italy. And, she began to create verses…

The second “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from a display I saw on a square at Como Lake (Italy). It is natural, and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about the image: “This picture looked both very industrial and like a barren canyon in winter.  Both places may seem bleak but I see life.  Snow, clouds, and people all seem to drift in the same direction, whether moved by snow or racing, tissue clouds. I could not help but make a copy of this photo to run my fingers across as I listened to the whispered tales of mottled surfaces.” 

I thank Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception.

ABOUT MEREDITH

Meredith (www.healingminds.wordpress.com) writes from a rich text based in theater, art, and design training. Also rooted from the soil of personal experience, Meredith writes about mental health and its challenges; her value of developing creative pursuits as part of the equation for living a satisfying life in the face of mental illness and recovery include yoga, dance, writing, and photography. 

Meredith’s professional background began in directing and choreography.  Her education in dance and theater lent equal weight to creating movement and learning projects for school children, grades K thru 12, and mentoring independent theater projects for high school students. When mental illness changed the landscape of her life, Meredith returned to school and redirected her passions toward quieter pursuits in architectural design.  Most recently, her love for writing and well-being generate roomy, new ideas about beauty and life, and she writes about mindful living from a deeper understanding.

“DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTICAL HAIGA # 1 BY MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Dandelion winds

    Swirl April blossoms wildly.

    Tangos in the night.

*

Space drips, light bends gold.

     Lavender boughs lift lightly.

     Birth swirls around me.

*

Morning lamplight glows.

    Shadow curtains lace the glass.

    Drip dot April blooms.

These beautiful and evocative verses created by fellow blogger Meredith – healingminds@WordPress.com – begin a four compositions series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga. This collaborative project, born from the web, delivered in this post, also celebrates my One Year Anniversary at WordPress: I began this blog exactly one year ago on May 9, 2011.

Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (Usa) – shared a preview about my most recent images I took from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in Netherlands and Italy. And she began to create verses…            

Meredith wrote this note about this creative experience: “I sit and sit with words, slips of paper, and dreams. Several thoughts came together on this picture, so far. I see a dancer, the dazzle of her dress made brilliant by a stage light.  Her lavender skirting and stage dust shake the brilliance of movement in all directions. Also, the soft, vibrant gold reminds me of Gustav Klimt. It’s like a view from beyond a pane of glass, spotted with raindrops. The warm glow of lamplight in early morning.  A rumpled quilt of lilac blooms splatter lavender shimmers in the early light of day. These are some of my thoughts, so far… These photos bring dreams!”

The first “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from an Amsterdam street. It’s a realistic, natural and not manipulated or enhanced image. My eyes found it near a door where someone probably (and carelessly) left paint drops…

Now that spontaneous and casual scene has become a visual art piece suggesting beautiful and fascinating verses: I thank  Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception. Yes, pictures for healingminds…

UNDERGROUND POP ART: “LACER/ACTIONS” FROM A SUBWAY STATION IN ROME

© Roberto Alborghetti

A few weeks ago, at Tiburtina subway’s station, in Rome, I had the way to catch some interesting images for my “Lacer/actions” art project ( pics of ripped  poster and urban signs). Near the platform 1, I saw a torn poster which revealed bright colors and nice shapes. It was a harmonious whole reminding me some pop art expressions. Blue, red and yellow were the prevailing colors (and yellow and red are the colors of the official and historic Rome’s coat-of-arms). The torn poster lacerations showed layers of paper and… dust (due to building yard which is renewing Tiburtina tube station).               

 

LACER/AZIONI” POP DALLA STAZIONE METRO DI ROMA TIBURTINA

Alla stazione metro di Roma Tiburtina ho avuto modo di recente di “scovare”, su un tabellone delle affissioni pubblicitarie, delle immagini pop molto interessanti nel loro armonioso modo di essere assemblate (casualmente). I colori rosso, giallo e blu (i colori primari) sono prevalenti. Senza scordare che il giallo ed il rosso sono le tinte che campeggiamo nello storico stemma romano. Incredibili gli strati di carta, che si sono andati via sovrapponendo, insieme alla polvere, sollevata dai lavori in corso che stanno rinnovando la stazione di Tiburtina.   

“GLORIOUS MORNING”: RUMI’S POEM INSPIRED A GREAT PIANO SOLO BY GENE EMERSON IN A CLIP WITH ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI ‘S ART

Music is colour, image, movement, poetry… and a GLORIOUS MORNING CLIP too! This is the title of a great original piano solo by Gene Emerson, from Canada. Gene is a talented composer and pianist. We are in contact through our YouTube channels. I was really amazed and fascinated by her music. When I heard her “Glorious Morning” I immediately thought to some of my “Lacer/actions” artworks.

 And the idea to collaborate with Gene for a clip became stronger when I read her words about the meaning she gave to her beautiful piano composition.

Gene says : “Glorious Morning is really an ode to a beautiful, warm and sunny morning at the beginning of Spring, – after long cold winter – when the world is changing, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Such a great change in nature has inspired me to compose this piece. Also, I must say, I have found Rumi‘s lovely poem ‘Spring Arrives’ is very close to the spirit of this piece. His poem is so much full of optimism. He throws away all dogmas, religious fanaticism and pessimism. His free spirited vision of love and passion for life is so overwhelming. Although the poem is 800 years old, but Rumi’s description of flowers and trees would never become old and it is very relevant for our Spring in 2012…”

 

So we decided to create a videoclip, trying to mix Gene music and my artworks (images of torn posters and urban signs). I selected nine pics that recall me in some ways the  wonderful melody and the surprising Gene Emerson’s  performance. The GLORIOUS MORNING CLIP has a double version ( 1′ and 30” for the extended one). So, enjoy this video. Great music and colors for a dreamin’ and relaxing moment…

AN “ART INSTALLATION” THAT AMSTERDAM DOESN’T KNOW TO HAVE… SO, LET’S BRING BACK OUR EYES ON THE STREETS…

  

This is the incredible big container where I took my images from (see my previous post:“4GOT10 TEARS” ON THE CONTAINER NEAR THE ROYAL PALACE )

It was located in Amsterdam centre – near the Royal Palace, in the very heart of the city – outside a building yard. Workers were putting in it every sort of materials. And passers-by didn’t noticed it at all… On a side of the big container I saw something… spectacular. A sort of “public art installation” that Amsterdam doesn’t know to have.

The four parts in which the container was divided showed four incredible scenes. They were a sort of thin paper films left when someone had taken away the posters.An unusual and compelling combination – white paper film, iron, rust, red, grey and green colors of the container – originated something great for my eyes. 

On request, I’m glad to present another selection of the images I took around the big container. All my “Lacer/actions” artworks are realistic, natural and not manipulated images.  So, enjoy them. Yes, they are pure street art. And we have to bring back our eyes on the streets, where we may find compelling open air galleries…         

ABOUT ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI’S LACER/ACTIONS ART

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 35.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think in the lacerated advertisings is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital. 

Some “Lacer/Actions” artworks were published in a booklet-portfolio: Pics of torn (publi)city”.  In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport, Italy).Myartworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perceptions (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests. In October 2010 I participated to “Parallax AF” in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…

“4GOT10 TEARS” ON THE CONTAINER NEAR THE ROYAL PALACE / THE AMSTERDAM’S LACER/ACTIONS FILES #3

 

I catch my “Lacer/actions” – Images Of Torn (publi)City – in the most strange places of the world. But what I saw a few weeks ago, in Amsterdam city centre, is really unique. Location: near the Royal Palace, in the very heart of the city. Outside a building yard, there was a big iron container in which workers were putting every sort of materials. I think people didn’t noticed it at all… But on a side of the big container I saw something spectacular ( for me and for my research about torn posters and urban signs).

 

The four parts in which the container was divided showed four incredible scenes. They were a sort of thin paper films left when someone had taken away the posters.An unusual and compelling combination – white paper film, iron, rust, red, grey and green colors of the container – originated something great for my eyes. I worked a lot with my cameras and I also did a video with my mobile, documenting an exceptional situation.

 

So, I’m glad to present here a very little selection of the images I took around the big container, the “Art Container”. This is the third photo gallery about my “Amsterdam’s Lacer/actions Files” dedicated to a three images series I “captured” in Netherlands during a recent trip. I like to repeat that all my “Lacer/actions” artworks are realistic, natural and not manipulated images.  So, enjoy my “Amsterdam’s Lacer/actions Files #3”, that I titled “4got10 tears”. Public art on a public place, in the shade of Royal Palace…
