LIKE UNKNOWN LANDS…CRACKS AND CORROSIONS ON PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS #2

Cracks & Corrosions like unknown lands… These are abstract photos I recently took in Milan : they refer to pedestrian crossings in an underground car park. They are part of “LaceR/Actions”, 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, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

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.

 

 

BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM: THE “CENTRAL WASTE” CONTAINER AS AN ART INSTALLATION # 1

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… Here are some of the many photographs I took around this large “pool” that carries with it the signs of time and human work.

The pictures featured in this photo-gallery 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. 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 and scratches give new meanings and expressions to matter decomposition, as you may see in this photo-gallery showing some works from my collection of about 120.000 images captured so far around the world.

A Beeston, sulla strada per Nottingham (Regno Unito) puoi avere la sorpresa di imbatterti in una specie di installazione d’arte… Graffi, disegni, tracce e linee prendono vita sulla superficie di un grande contenitore giallo di rifiuti (Central Waste). Ecco alcune delle tante fotografie che ho scattato attorno a questa grande “vasca” che porta con se i segni del tempo e del lavoro.

THE TORN (PUBLI)CITY: NUMBERS & CODES LEFT ON ADVERTISING BOARDS

After the advertisement has been torn and removed from the billboards, traces and marks of ink, glue and residuals of paper can be glimpsed on the surface. In my opinion, this is a unique spectacle. An open-air exhibition. Our eye can read and admire strange shapes and a sort of codes – like the numbers – that only the time and the chance can decipher.

Also in this photogallery I have gathered some of the images I took around a big outdoor billboard located in Milan area (Italy).  The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, my 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 (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

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, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions! © Roberto Alborghetti

Dopo che la pubblicità è stata strappata e tolta dai tabelloni, si possono intravvedere, sulla superficie, tracce e segni di inchiostro, colla e residui di carta. A mio parere, tutto ciò costituisce uno spettacolo unico. Una mostra a cielo aperto. Il nostro occhio può leggere ed ammirare strane forme ed una sorta di codici che solo il caso e il fato possono decifrare. Penso che tutto ciò sia un linguaggio. E’ il codice espressivo della strada, che parla e comunica in un modo assolutamente sorprendente. Sì, sono convinto che questa sia vera e pura arte di strada, costruita in virtù di una forza che sfugge al nostro controllo. Sì, tutto molto suggestivo. Occorre essere subito pronti ad impressionare queste scene, parte del progetto “Lacer/azioni”…

THE NEW “LAMIAGENDA”! THE COVER REPRODUCES MY ARTWORK MADE WITH WASTE PAPER

It’s out! LamiAgenda 2019/2020 is ready! This year’s theme is “Di cotti & di crudi”, an Italian pun that means: “Cooked and raw”. The texts are in fact a guide to good and healthy nutritionMy artwork, “Strati di memoria n.2” (Memory Layers n.2), made with small pieces of waste paper, is the cover and characterizes the entire iconographic section.

LamiAgenda, published in Italy by I Quindici, has a square shape – this year also a new rectangular size – the texts are written in Easy Reading format (ideal for those who are subject to forms of dyslexia) and contains personalized pages made by the same schools. Yes, it’s a small masterpiece of design, starting from the cover, which is in line with the annual theme of the diary, devoted to food and to healthy and good nutrition, without excess and without food waste.

1969-2019, CELEBRATING THE MOON (PHOTO OF TORN PUBLICITY POSTER ON A BILLBOARD)

Celebrating the Moon 2019

In my close-up photographs of decompositions and disfigurement of the urban environment, we often recognize figurative elements. As in the case of this image, captured on an advertisement board. It is not a painting. It is not an acrylic. It is not an oil. And not even a collage. It is a simple photographic image. It suggests thoughts and memories for Moon Day 2019, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the historic lunar landing, which occurred on 20 th of July 1969.

The picture is 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 picture above.

Celebrating the Moon - Postcard 2019 - r.alborghetti

*

Nelle mie fotografie (a distanza ravvicinata) di decomposizioni e deturpazione dell’ambiente urbano, capita spesso di riconoscere elementi figurativi. Come nel caso di questa immagine, colta su un tabellone della pubblicità. Non è un dipinto. Non è un acrilico.Non è un olio. E nemmeno un collage. E’ una semplice immagine fotografica. Suggerisce pensieri e ricordi per il Moon Day 2019, che celebra l’arrivo degli esseri umani sulla luna, avvenuto 50 anni fa.

L’immagine fa parte del mio progetto-ricerca “LaceR/Azioni”, che ora ha raggiunto 120.000 foto scattate in tutto il mondo. “LaceR/Azioni” è un progetto multidisciplinare che documenta elementi decomposti e deturpati dell’ambiente urbano, come manifesti pubblicitari strappati, crepe e graffi naturali, materiali industriali. Impressionati dalla fotocamera e trasferiti su tele, riprodotti su stampe litografiche o tessuti, ricostruiti su collage o scansionati in videoclip, i dettagli di manifesti pubblicitari e gli elementi strappati e decomposti danno nuova vita alla carta straccia e alle cose scomposte. Come l’immagine qui sopra.
