ARE THESE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF A SEASIDE TOWN? NO, THEY ARE SIMPLY CRACKS AND CORROSIONS

At first glance they look like one of those images for the aerial photography category. Indeed, aerial photographs of a city located on the sea … You can see the network of streets and the strip that is located near the sea, which is obviously blue … But this reading is only the result of a mental image, from a personal point of view. The photos, much more simply, are close-up shots of the surface of a disfigured warning sign that I identified at the Monterotondo railway station, a city that is located at the gates of Rome. Yes, amazing cracks!

This series of shots is also part of the now large collection (over 120,000 photographs) for my “Lacer/actions” project, which documents the beauty of the imperfect (and decomposed) reality that surrounds us, and which we often cannot perceive. So: welcome to the blue city on the blue sea, the one we see from above of the plane…of our mind.

A prima vista sembrano proprio una di quelle immagini per la categoria delle fotografie aeree. Anzi, fotografie aeree di una città che si trova sul mare… Si possono scorgere il reticolo delle vie e la striscia che si trova in prossimità del mare, che è ovviamente di colore blu… Ma questa lettura è solo frutto di una immagine mentale, di un punto di vista personale. Le foto, molto più semplicemente, sono scatti ravvicinati della superficie di un cartello segnaletico, corroso dal tempo, individuato presso la Stazione ferroviaria di Monterotondo, città che si trova alle porte di Roma. Anche questa serie di scatti fa parte della ormai ampia collezione (oltre 120.000 fotografie) per il mio progetto “Lacer/actions”, che documenta la bellezza della realtà imperfetta (e decomposta) che ci circonda, e che spesso non riusciamo a percepire. E allora: benvenuti nella città blu sul mare blu, quella che vediamo dall’alto, a bordo di un aereo.

 

 

WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY 2020: AN EXPERIENCE OF COLORS AND EMOTIONS

*

This videoclip presents a series of pictures about “a journey through special painterly colors and materials” and the wonderful experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. It’s nice to remember it, when we celebrate the World Autism Awereness Day 2020 (April 2). 

Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists  who have re-composed and re-built artworks from “Lacer / actions” Project by Roberto Alborghetti. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches, urban and industrial matters, as presented in the videoclip.  

Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between color and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti artworks have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special pupils  like so much Roberto’s colors, scratches and cracks. But don’t ask me why…”.

RETROSPECTIVE: ADVERTISING POSTERS ON BILLBOARD AND THEIR PROCESS OF CHANGE (VIDEO, 2010)

“Lacer/actions – Lacer/azioni” was made exactly 10 years ago: in March  2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. In the video we see some of the macro photographic images I took around advertising posters billboard. I have always been impressed and fascinated by the way in which publicity posters undergo a natural process of changethe atmosphere corrodes them, the wind tears and cuts them, the rain changes them into different colors and finally they are superimposed with other posters.

Yes, they’re not paintings, but “Lacer/actions”!

These are not modern art paintings or pop art works. They are just macro and abstract photos of details of a disfigured wastebin, in Milan… The pictures are 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 pictures above.
