THE FOUR SEASONS IN LACER/ACTIONS: WINTER #4

© Roberto Alborghetti

Each season has its colors. But what colors does winter have? Easy to answer, just look around … The torn advertising posters on billboards also have winter colors. So, through my macro photos  I tried to imagine a color palette … Yes, trails of snow and ice, in exclusive for my LaceR/Actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. 

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some of the 120.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us. A videoclip will follow very soon.

Ogni stagione ha i suoi colori. Ma che colori ha l’inverno? Facile rispondere, basta del resto guardarsi attorno… Anche i manifesti strappati della pubblicità hanno colori invernali. Ho quindi provato ad immaginare una tavolozza di colori… Sì, scie di neve e di ghiaccio…

This is the cover of the 2020/2021 edition of “LamiAgenda”, the school diary available from Summer 2020, published in Italy by I Quindici. It presents a detail of “The Third Eye” collage I created using waste paper recovered from disfigured advertising posters. I made it for my “Lacer/actions” project. It is the fourth consecutive year that “LamiAgenda” offers my artwork on the cover.

RETROSPECTIVE / SEASON’S GREETINGS: STARS FROM 2009 (VIDEO)

Here is another video created 10 years ago. Exactly in December 2009. The intent and goal was to express good wishes with my “Lacer / actions” project. So, I wanted to assemble torn up advertising posters with the characteristic of having stars. Yes, Xmas Stars!  So here is Stars & Tears video. With best wishes for Happy Holidays!

Dunque, volevo assemblare immagini di manifesti pubblicitari strappati con la caratteristica di avere stelle. Stelle di Natale… Quindi, ecco Stelle & Strappi. Con tanti auguri di Buone Feste!

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.

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.
