MACROPHOTOGRAPHY ON VIDEO #2 / THE CRACKS: EVERYTHING IS MAGNIFICENTLY (UN)REAL

Macrophotography on video. When the cracks – produced in all kinds of materials – take on a surprising dimension. Here is a series of macro images, for my “Lacer / Actions” project. Nothing is as it seems. Nothing is as it appears. Because everything is magnificently un-real. “Lacer/actions” is a project-research about the elements of… Read More MACROPHOTOGRAPHY ON VIDEO #2 / THE CRACKS: EVERYTHING IS MAGNIFICENTLY (UN)REAL

“PROJECTION GAME”#8 / THE VIDEO: WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THESE CRACKS?

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.… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#8 / THE VIDEO: WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THESE CRACKS?

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

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?… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#7 / REALITY IS NEVER WHAT IT SEEMS

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

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

“PROJECTION GAME”#4 / A GREAT EXPLOSION OF LIGHT AND MATTER: THE PRIMAL CHAOS?

In the beginning it was like the big bang. Everything was blown up, as in a great explosion of light and matter. Yes, they call it primal chaos. These are the suggestions proposed by this macro photograph, which is part of a series relating to a large outdoor advertising billboard. The layers of paper, once… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#4 / A GREAT EXPLOSION OF LIGHT AND MATTER: THE PRIMAL CHAOS?

“PROJECTION GAME”#3 / THAT BLACK HALF MOON IS WATCHING US …

Welcome to the “projection game”! 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. Today I… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#3 / THAT BLACK HALF MOON IS WATCHING US …

“PROJECTION GAME” #2 / WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THE SCRATCHES OF AN OLD GATE?

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… Read More “PROJECTION GAME” #2 / WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THE SCRATCHES OF AN OLD GATE?

ARCHIPELAGOS OR SOMETHING ELSE? WELCOME TO THE “PROJECTION GAME” # 1

Here is a macro photograph that becomes like a map. In recent days I captured this image on a shop window in Bitonto, Bari, Puglia. So it appeared from the outside, on the public road. I immediately read there archipelagos and imaginary continents to orient myself in parallel worlds (but not too much). Or can… Read More ARCHIPELAGOS OR SOMETHING ELSE?
