“RAINBOWS” VIDEO: A JOURNEY OF WONDER WITH THE VOICE OF JEANIE BARTON

“Rainbows” video is the third collaboration with jazz singer and composer Jeanie Barton. Her  wonderful voice goes with my abstract photos: colors of decomposed papers of torn publicity posters and natural cracks and scratches. “Rainbows” song is from the new album released by Jeanie: “Moments of Clarity”. I’m so proud about this clip which mixes and matches again Jeanie’s wonderful voice and music with my visual works; they aren’t paintings or digitally made compositions, but macro photos of reality around us.

Infos about the videoclip: “Rainbows” :  Composition and vocals by Jeanie Barton;  production by Simon Paterson; Photography and video by Roberto Alborghetti.

ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“LaceR/Actions” is 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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 120.000 macro photos). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the macro images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition.

Two of my solo shows was displaced at the Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany and at the Romanesque St. John Baptistery (XI Century) on Lake Como. 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 artworks are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy). The amazing “Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK, with lot of events including short films premieres and public conversations.

EVEN ON THIS BLOG THERE WILL BE A BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE…

Also on this blog there will be a total eclipse … and the moon will be red (and not only) as you have never seen it before … I will present you a videoclip, dedicated to the moon, to its phases and misteries, regardless of whether on July 27 there is or not a lunar eclipse, with our satellite destined to become rust orange or of an intense red color, so much so as to be called “blood moon”. It will be a completely personal way of “telling” the moon and the effects it has always had on our Planet. On us.

Anche su questo blog ci sarà presto un’eclissi totale … e la luna sarà rossa (e non solo) come non l’avrete mai vista prima… Vi presenteremo un videoclip, dedicato alla luna, alle sue fasi, indipendentemente dal fatto che il prossimo 27 luglio ci sia o non ci sia una eclissi lunare, con l’astro destinato a diventare arancione ruggine o di colore rosso intenso, tanto appunto da essere definito “luna di sangue”. Sarà un modo del tutto personale di “raccontare” la luna e gli effetti che da sempre ha sul nostro Pianeta…

Dal 25 Luglio 2020, vedremo e ascolteremo “Rainbows” (Arcobaleni), il mio nuovo progetto con la cantante e compositrice Jeanie Barton (UK), interprete di uno dei suoi brani di successo dall’album “Moments of Clarity”, prodotto da Simon Paterson. . “Take me on a journey of wonder” (Portami in un viaggio di meraviglia).

 

 

TEN YEARS AGO (2010), “THE 4 ELEMENTS”: MY MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY WENT ON SHOW

Ten years ago, exactly in these days – July 16, 17 and 18, 2010 – my macro photographs went on show in the suggestive and futuristic setting of Oriocenter, one of the largest and most visited shopping centers in Italy. An incredible place: my artworks were placed against the background of the airport and the profile of one of the most beautiful Italian cities, the Upper Town of Bergamo.

Thirty thousand people visited my solo show at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport). It was a great success and a special occasion to admire and to meet my research years about macro photography on torn and decompoed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, corrosions of industrial and urban materials. During the special event at Oriocenter, I presented 40 artworks (litographies) dedicated to “Four Elements”: water, air, earth and fire”. The claim of exhibition was: “We may see things that we don’t even imagine” .

Meeting people and journalists had the way to know more about my  multidisciplinary project named “laceR/Actions”. For instance, at that time, my artworks pics were taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perception (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests.  As reviewers wrote “Alborghetti’s artworks gather and mixes up – in a provocative way – different languages, from street art to video art, passing through music, photography, performances, graphic a.s.o.” The exhibition at Oriocenter was curated by  arch. Giampaolo Biffi; collaborators: Aldo Mapelli (painter) and Alessandro Colombo Building Company. The three days exhibition received a huge attention by medias;  articles and stories were published by newspapers and magazines. Tv Channels  interviewed me showing some of my “laceR/Actions” artworks.

I’d like to report, about the show, what said, by journalist, author and artist Mina Cappussi. She wrote: “Roberto Alborghetti choose to silence words and to let the images tell. LaceR/Actions are really unusual images, so far away from common visions. They are not manipulated images, they are natural images. Alborghetti “spies” advertisings, and all what is ripped, sticked and lacerated paper, mixin’up styles, colors, explicit or subliminal messages. Alborghetti proceeds his research in an ingenious way, re-reading  images and messages in the light of superimposition, like a photoshot with a long time exposure, lettin’ flow emotions, sensations, events that contaminate the original scene. And so, the contamination becomes art, and we have the way to discover new points of view and observation, settin’ free one mind of prejudices and conventional thoughts”.

 

Ten years ago, in 2010,

WE WILL LISTEN (AND SEE) THE … “RAINBOWS”. FROM JULY 25, 2020

From July 25, 2020, we will see and listen to “Rainbows”  my new project with singer and composer Jeanie Barton (UK), interpreter of one of her hit songs from the album “Moments of Clarity”, produced by Simon Paterson. “Take me on a journey of wonder” .

MACRO PHOTO #30 / HERE IS THE LAST CARD: CRACKS (AS MAPS) ON THE GHOST BUS

CARD # 4

“I see with an eye that feels, I feel with a hand that sees” (J. W. Von Goethe).

A few years ago, the images of my artistic project “Lacer/actions” were used to offer groups of people a sort of psychological game, in order to provoke thoughts, comments, emotions, moods. I must say that, from what I was told, the results were surprising. No, it was not a Rorschach test, but my macro photographs simply stimulated personal and collective stimuli, ideas, feelings and memories.

To tell the truth, this did not surprise me, and it still does not surprise me. All this, in fact, was and is at the origin of my research activity concerning everything that is part of the process of decomposition of matter and materials: paper, glues, natural corrosions, scratches and cracks, industrial stuff… These images strike, above all, above all myself. Therefore, it is understandable that they then also reach the hearts and minds of others. They are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us. That world that often we do not perceive or observe. A world which can reveal something about what we feel inside…

Some interesting facts are demonstrated by the same workshops that, in some schools, are promoted bringing the kids to “play” with the images I made. It is a fun game, which pushes creativity and the desire to express oneself, telling oneself with words, talking about shapes and colors. Yes, pure chromotherapy.

It is a special game, which I like to propose, in this month of June 2020. Every day, here on my Blog, you will find an image, in the form of a card: 30 cards for a month. This is the last one: the 30th. I propose an instrument, a means. You can add the rest yourself in terms of thoughts, moods, questions, reactions, ideas, moods. So play your game. And may the creativity be with you!

5 CARDS FROM “THE GHOST BUS”

DSCN7562 (640x480) (640x480)Also the 30th and last card comes from The Ghost Bus project, promoted in Nottingham (UK) with ACT Group (founded by Marysia Zipser) and Bartons Garage: “A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood”. It is the picture-symbol of the whole project. I discovered the Ghost Bus in Beeston, at  Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars. I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the   “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. So, I took lot of macro photos around and inside the “ghost bus”… So, we began this wonderful “visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood“. The project includes events, short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection of canvases and much more.

“Vedo con un occhio che sente, sento con una mano che vede”. J.W.Von Goethe

Qualche anno fa, le immagini del mio progetto artistico “Lacer/azioni” vennero utilizzate per proporre a gruppi di persone una sorta di gioco psicologico, al fine di provocare pensieri, commenti, emozioni, stati d’animo. Devo dire che, da quanto mi riferirono, i risultati furono sorprendenti. No, non era un test alla Rorschach, ma semplicemente le mie macro fotografie andavano a suscitare stimoli, idee, sensazioni e ricordi personali e collettivi. La cosa, a dir la verità, non mi sorprese, e non mi sorprende tuttora. Tutto ciò, infatti, era ed è all’origine di questa mia attività di ricerca riguardante tutto ciò che fa parte del processo di decomposizione della materia e dei materiali. Queste immagini colpiscono, prima di tutti, soprattutto me stesso. Dunque, è comprensibile che poi arrivino anche al cuore e alla mente degli altri. Lo dimostrano anche gli stessi laboratori che, in alcune scuole, sono stati organizzati portando i ragazzi a “giocare” con le immagini da me realizzate.

E’ un gioco divertente, che spinge la creatività e la voglia di di esprimersi, raccontandosi con le parole oppure con altre immagini. Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!

Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!

 

MACRO PHOTO #26 / THE CHROMOTHERAPY CARDS: COLORS FROM THE GHOST BUS

“I see with an eye that feels, I feel with a hand that sees” (J. W. Von Goethe).

A few years ago, the images of my artistic project “Lacer/actions” were used to offer groups of people a sort of psychological game, in order to provoke thoughts, comments, emotions, moods. I must say that, from what I was told, the results were surprising. No, it was not a Rorschach test, but my macro photographs simply stimulated personal and collective stimuli, ideas, feelings and memories.

To tell the truth, this did not surprise me, and it still does not surprise me. All this, in fact, was and is at the origin of my research activity concerning everything that is part of the process of decomposition of matter and materials: paper, glues, natural corrosions, scratches and cracks, industrial stuff… These images strike, above all, above all myself. Therefore, it is understandable that they then also reach the hearts and minds of others. They are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us. That world that often we do not perceive or observe. A world which can reveal something about what we feel inside…

Some interesting facts are demonstrated by the same workshops that, in some schools, are promoted bringing the kids to “play” with the images I made. It is a fun game, which pushes creativity and the desire to express oneself, telling oneself with words, talking about shapes and colors. Yes, pure chromotherapy.

It is a special game, which I like to propose, in this month of June 2020. Every day, here on my Blog, you will find an image, in the form of a card: 30 cards for a month. I propose an instrument, a means. You can add the rest yourself in terms of thoughts, moods, questions, reactions, ideas, moods. So play your game. And may the creativity be with you!

5 CARDS FROM “THE GHOST BUS”

As you see above, the last 5 cards comes from The Ghost Bus project, promoted in Nottingham (UK) with ACT Group (founded by Marysia Zipser) and Bartons Garage. I discovered the Ghost Bus in Beeston, at  Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars. I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the   “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. So, I took lot of macro photos around and inside the “ghost bus”… The project includes also short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection of canvases.

“Vedo con un occhio che sente, sento con una mano che vede”. J.W.Von Goethe

Qualche anno fa, le immagini del mio progetto artistico “Lacer/azioni” vennero utilizzate per proporre a gruppi di persone una sorta di gioco psicologico, al fine di provocare pensieri, commenti, emozioni, stati d’animo. Devo dire che, da quanto mi riferirono, i risultati furono sorprendenti. No, non era un test alla Rorschach, ma semplicemente le mie macro fotografie andavano a suscitare stimoli, idee, sensazioni e ricordi personali e collettivi. La cosa, a dir la verità, non mi sorprese, e non mi sorprende tuttora. Tutto ciò, infatti, era ed è all’origine di questa mia attività di ricerca riguardante tutto ciò che fa parte del processo di decomposizione della materia e dei materiali. Queste immagini colpiscono, prima di tutti, soprattutto me stesso. Dunque, è comprensibile che poi arrivino anche al cuore e alla mente degli altri. Lo dimostrano anche gli stessi laboratori che, in alcune scuole, sono stati organizzati portando i ragazzi a “giocare” con le immagini da me realizzate.

E’ un gioco divertente, che spinge la creatività e la voglia di di esprimersi, raccontandosi con le parole oppure con altre immagini. Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!
