“PROJECTION GAME”#6 / IS IT LIKE IF WE FLY AT 10,000 METERS IN HEIGHT ABOVE A CITY?

© Roberto Alborghetti

This is picture #6 of our “projection game”. What does it show? It would seem a scene seen from above, from the windows of an airplane, while flying at a height of ten thousand meters: we see streets, squares, communication routes, urban districts … Instead it is something very close: a macro shot of a detail of a large waste container.

Since I started documenting, with the camera, the world of the decomposition of materials, people have always been spontaneously pushed to see, in my macro images, worlds and dimensions that I had never imagined. I think it is one of the most interesting aspects of my research project.

A LESSON BY LEONARDO DA VINCI

Since the beginning of humanity there have always been those who have tried to read the clouds, the sky, the stars of the night, the signs of the earth. In practice, what is part of one’s inner world has always been projected onto the outside, in search of security, explanations, reassurance.

I have always been fascinated by the behavior of Leonardo Da Vinci who advised his students to carefully observe the stains on the old and dirty walls, or to see and scrutinize the marbled stones, in order to see landscapes, battles, heads, figures, shapes.

In practice, the great Leonardo advised his students to take part in what today, in various fields of knowledge, is called a “projection”. Moreover, the human being needs to know himself and to develop his interiority through external stimuli (and the experience of the “test” as a psychodiagnostic tool will also arise from this).

Sembrerebbe una scena vista dall’alto, dai finestrini di un aereo, mentre si vola a diecimila metri di altezza. Invece è qualcosa di molto ravvicinato. Lo scatto macro di un particolare di un grande contenitore di rifiuti.
