HOW MUCH GREEN WILL THERE BE IN THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES?

Trump wants less green in the future of US… His withdraw from the Paris agreement still undoubtedly brings risks for the rest of the world. There are lots of possible pathways to the zero-emission global economy needed in the second half of this century to avoid the “severe, widespread and irreversible impacts” warned of by the world’s scientists.

 

 

ITALIAN FLAG AS SEEN ON A PUBLICITY BILLBOARD: VISUAL ART FOR THE ITALIAN REPUBLIC HOLIDAY

White, Red and Green are the colors of the Italian Flag. Here some random pics from my “Lacer/actions” Project: they are a sort of tribute to Italian Republic Holiday (it’s today, June 2). I saw them on a publicity billboard and I was captured by the way the case re-built and re-constructed them.

My “Lacer/actions” project is gathering documentary evidence about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters (on outdoor  advertisings), crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings, industrial tokens. The scenes from the real world are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Lacer/actions and Cracks… We are surrounded by lacerations and cracks. We live in a planet of lacerations cracks. And they may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection and waste materials.

“LAMIAGENDA” IS OUT! HERE IS THE FIRST “VISUAL” SCHOOL DIARY WITH EASYREADING FONT!

“LamiAgenda” is out! Quindici just published it in Italy. My artworks – one collage (Lost Words, reproduced on the cover) and seven abstract photos from my “Lacer/actions” Project – constitute the iconographic elements of  the first “visual” school diary”. “LamiAgenda” is all printed in EasyReading font. Internationally, EasyReading is the only font explicitly “dedicated” to dyslexic readers which, subjected to autonomous and independent scientific research on the degree of legibility, has achieved positive results.

THAT ABSTRACT WORLD UNDER OUR FEET # 2: A DISFIGURED PAVEMENT IN FLORENCE

© Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions

Yes, there is an abstract world under our feet … These are some of the images I recently took walking along the streets of Florence (Italy). They’re macro of a disfigured pavement. 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. 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!

This picture (abstract photo) is 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. It’s one of the 100.000 images I have taken so far around the world.

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 and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (2012-2103, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last years I worked on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy).

“The Ghost Bus/A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art. With fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film) and an innovative fabric prints series.
