“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!

(HE)ART OF “LACER/ACTIONS”: ABSTRACT PHOTO OF A TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER

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.

IT’S RAINING OLYMPIC GAMES COLORS..! BUT THEY’RE PHOTOS OF A RIPPED AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER

Blue, Black, Red, Yellow and Green: five colors representing our Continents. Five colors we find in the five circles of the historic Olympiad logo. The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games suggested me to toy with my “Lacer/actions” artpieces, realistic and not manipulated images of torn and decomposed posters. In my collection – almost 100.000 images – I found interesting and particular works, as the piece I show here…

There’re no circles and no official logo, but the 5 colors movement is so funny and amazing… Yes, it’s raining Olympic Games colors! Someone shattered the circles and the colors are now able to move everywhere, to fall and to go up… A metaphore about humanity profound hopes and desires of freedom?

These abstract photos were part of one of the most capturing torn posters I ever seen so far during my long research about ripped ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background.

“LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers (from billboards and advertisings diplays), natural cracks and scratches, decompositions on urban and industrial matters.

I have so far collected almost 100.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs, aluminum or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think in the lacerated advertisings and in the matters decompositions is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital.
