There are some amazing and unusual landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper. We can see them in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of different cities, from  outdoor billboards.  The pictures 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 (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!

There are some amazing and original landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper we can see in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of diffrent cities. They’re macro and abstract photos of a decomposed publicity poster I saw on outdoor billboards.  The pictures 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 (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

“GLOBAL WARMING, GLOBAL WARNING”: A NEW COLLAGE FOR WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY (June 5, 2018)

Global Warming - Roberto Alborghetti

Remembering the World Environment Day (June 5, 2018). “Global warming, global warning”: this is a photo of my new collage made up of hundreds of small pieces of waste paper of disfigured and torn publicity posters. It measures 110 x 57 cms and is built on a wooden board. This is a special preview of the work, which I made slowly during the last year, in the little free time left to me by the writing of books, presentations and lectures around Italy.

Giornata Mondiale della Terra, 5 Giugno 2018. “Riscaldamento globale, avviso globale” : questa è l’anteprima fotografica del  mio nuovo collage fatto tutto di piccoli pezzi di carta straccia di manifesti pubblicitari deturpati e lacerati. Misura centimetri 110 x 57 ed è costruito su una tavola di legno. L’immagine è una speciale anteprima del lavoro, che ho realizzato lentamente nel corso di quest’ultimo anno, nel poco tempo libero lasciatomi dal lavoro di scrittura di libri e da presentazioni in giro per l’Italia. Per ricordare la Giornata Mondiale per la Terra 2018.
