What do you see in these pics? These images aren’t paintings, but macro photos of the world around us. They were taken from poles along the streets in Lamezia Terme (Italy). They are part of Roberto Alborghetti ‘s project and research (called “Lacer/actions”) about decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters.
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).
