RETROSPECTIVE: BLUE TRACKS / TRACCE BLU (VIDEO, 2010)

“Blue Tracks / Tracce Blu” was made exactly 10 years ago: in January 2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. I took some of the macro photographic images of torn advertising posters. This is another video clip for “Lacer/actions” project. The dominant color of these images is blue  And the tears and decomposition of paper often take the form of water, rain, ice and sky.

“Tracce Blu” è stato realizzato 10 anni fa, nel gennaio 2010. L’ho creato attraverso la piattaforma Animoto, accettando la sfida di produrre un videoclip di trenta secondi di durata massima. Ho preso alcune delle immagini fotografiche macro di manifesti pubblicitari strappati e decomposti. Il colore dominante di queste immagini è il blu. E gli strappi e la decomposizione della carta assumono spesso la forma di pioggia, cieli, acqua e ghiaccio…

MACRO PHOTOS OF A WASTE BASKET WITH CORROSIONS AND CRACKS

Video for Lacer/actions Project. The wear and tear of time causes corrosion and cracking. This is what happened to the waste baskets placed in the center of a surprising medieval village, Abbadia San Salvatore, on Mount Amiata, in the heart of Tuscany. The yellow paint, over the years, has peeled off and corroded, leaving room for imaginary arabesques that the eye of my camera caught at close range. Soundtrack: Consort for Brass, Kevin MacLeod (YouTube Audio Library).

THE FOUR SEASONS IN LACER/ACTIONS: WINTER #3

Each season has its colors. But what colors does winter have? Easy to answer, just look around … The torn advertising posters on billboards also have winter colors. So, through my macro photos  I tried to imagine a color palette … Yes, trails of snow and ice, in exclusive for my LaceR/Actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project 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 images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some of the 120.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us.

Ogni stagione ha i suoi colori. Ma che colori ha l’inverno? Facile rispondere, basta del resto guardarsi attorno… Anche i manifesti strappati della pubblicità hanno colori invernali. Ho quindi provato ad immaginare una tavolozza di colori… Sì, scie di neve e di ghiaccio…

12 PICS (FOR 12 MONTHS) SELECTED FROM THE 12.000 MACRO PHOTOS TAKEN IN 2019

 

What better way to remember a year, 2019, with twelve images, one for each month? Here are twelve images for twelve months, selected from the approximately 12,000 that I captured in 2019. From January to December, traveling through colors and emotions,  through macro photographs that tell the reality that surrounds us … As is the purpose of my Lacer/actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project 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 images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing twelve of the 125.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us.

Quale modo migliore di ricordare un anno, il 2019, con dodici immagini, una per ogni mese? Ecco dunque dodici immagini per dodici mesi, selezionate tra le circa 12.000 che ho catturato nel 2019. Da gennaio a dicembre, viaggiando tra colori ed emozioni attravero macro fotografie che raccontano la realtà che ci circonda… Come è nella finalità del mio progetto Lacer/azioni

RETROSPECTIVE / SEASON’S GREETINGS: STARS FROM 2009 (VIDEO)

Here is another video created 10 years ago. Exactly in December 2009. The intent and goal was to express good wishes with my “Lacer / actions” project. So, I wanted to assemble torn up advertising posters with the characteristic of having stars. Yes, Xmas Stars!  So here is Stars & Tears video. With best wishes for Happy Holidays!

Ecco un altro video creato 10 anni fa. Esattamente nel dicembre 2009. L’intento e l’obiettivo erano quelli di esprimere gli auguri con il mio progetto “Lacer/actions”. Dunque, volevo assemblare immagini di manifesti pubblicitari strappati con la caratteristica di avere stelle. Stelle di Natale… Quindi, ecco Stelle & Strappi. Con tanti auguri di Buone Feste!
