THE “PRIMAVERA” GARDEN…/ SCENES FROM A TORN PUBLICITY POSTER

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research 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 details of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this images series with some of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting  Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

SIGNS OF A CITY / REMEMBERING PARIS THROUGH COLORS BLOTS (FROM TORN AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS)

Fellow blogger Theadora Brack through her interesting blog People,Places and Bling kindly asked me about pics I shot in Paris a few years ago for my project “Lacer/actions” (Images of torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens). I have just to say that also in Paris the traditional billboards have been replaced by electronic or plastic displays. It was not so easy to find them. But luck helps who dares… and who opens the doors of perception.

So, I had the way to capture some interesting images also in the French Capital. They were located in central areas, but not so visible to absent-minded passers-by. I took also some shots under the bridges, though the light conditions weren’t so good… In some tube stations I caught other images with nice shapes and colors blots: they seem to be a sort of elusive ghosts or mysterious tokens stolen from a beautiful city which wants to keep inside all its colored secrets… Et voilà mes images…

NEW VIDEO: “FALLING SNOW”, THE ETHEREAL SOUNDSCAPES OF FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 R.A. ARTWORKS

***

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my collection of pics from torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration borned and created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…

THE AESTHETICS OF DECOMPOSITION: “THAT “BEAUTY ZONE” WHERE THERE IS AN OPTIMAL MIX OF ORDER AND DISORDER”

Fellow blogger Nannus (Andreas Keller nick name) – see his blog Asifoscopefound my Lacer/actions pages and wrote some interesting comments about my works which represents, as you know, torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. I’m pleased to share his precious thoughts concerning the concepts of decomposition, art and beauty.       

By Nannus

If you had told me that (Lacer/actions) is art from the 1950s “Informel” school of art or Sam Francis or anything like this, I would  have believed it 🙂 Incredibly beautiful!

Human-made things are often structured in an orderly fashion. On decomposing, disorder is being added. At some point, this process reaches a stage of just the right mixture of order and disorder for our perception to create the experience of beauty. This also happens on the decomposition of organisms (like leafs, for example). There is an aesthetics of decomposition as a result.

One addendum to my previous comment: part of the order may comes from the decomposition process itself, so while the original, human-made order is destroyed, temporarily the object might go through a stage with some decomposition-caused order, e.g. a network of cracks forming some fractal pattern that has random properties but also some kind of regularity (examples in some of these  Roberto Alborghetti Canvases). At some point, the object moves through a “beauty zone”, where there is an optimal mix of order and disorder.

It is stunning how the results resemble art styles like Abstract Impressionism, Informel and the like.
