“PROJECTION GAME”#7 / REALITY IS NEVER WHAT IT SEEMS

© Roberto Alborghetti

This is picture #7 of our “projection game”. Reality is never what it seems. It is the macro photography of the torn and defaced paper of an advertising poster on a billboard outside. What does it show? A cone of light? A moon at midnight? A luminous ball? An unidentified flying object? Or something else?

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).

Un cono di luce? Una luna a mezzanotte? Una palla luminosa? Un oggetto volante non identificato? O qualcosa d’altro? La realtà non è mai come sembra. E’ la macrofotografia della carta lacerata e deturpata di un manifesto pubblicitario su di un cartellone all’esterno. Per il progetto “Lacer/azioni”.
