SOME CRACKS AND DIFFERENT WAYS TO SHOW THEM

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial corrosions (I’ve collected so far more than 120.000 photos…).

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

I think the universe of cracks is a really wonderful world… We are surrounded by cracks… We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor and “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took near Rome, in Monterotondo. And I show them in different ways.

JUST FOR 2 DAYS: FREE DOWNLOAD OF “LACER/ACTIONS” PORTFOLIO (PUBLISHED IN 2009)

© Roberto Alborghetti

Ten years ago – it was 2009 – I published a portfolio dedicated to my “Lacer / Actions” project and reseacrh. I wanted to tell people about my hobby of photographing the decomposition of torn advertising posters. And I wanted to publish some of the tens of thousands of macro images I had already taken around the world.

And so “Pics of torn (publi)City” was published. Ten years later I am happy to remember that publication and give friends of this Blog the chance to download it for free. Thank you for your attention and have a good journey through emotions and states of mind aroused by these images that surround us. These are not paintings, but simply abstract photographs …

TIME O U T

 

Dieci anni fa – era il 2009 – pubblicavo un portfolio dedicato al mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”. Volevo raccontare del mio hobby di fotografare la decomposizione dei manifesti pubblicitari strappati. E volevo pubblicare alcune delle decine di migliaia di immagini macro che avevo già scattato, in giro per il mondo.

E così venne pubblicato “Pics of torn (publi)city”. A dieci anni di distanza sono lieto di ricordare questa pubblicazione e dare la possibilità agli amici di questo Blog di scaricarlo gratuitamente. Grazie per l’attenzione e buon viaggio attreverso emozioni e stati d’animo suscitati da queste immagini che stanno attorno a noi. Questi non sono dipinti, ma semplicemente fotografie astratte…

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.
