video

 

With languages ​​perfectly in tune with the times of globalization, the artist constructs with “tonight live” a kind of lens which focuses on the processes of change of costume and behavior immoderately amplified. Protagonist on the international scene investigating the behavior causing emotions and feelings that reflect the desire of estrangement from the common usual routine.

A quiet autumn night in tokyo. a man stops his car at a shop front with a number of vending machines to get a last drink of tea on his way home. he inserts a coin, but instead of the usual procedure, the machine starts performing its own peculiar performance…

F.A.T.
2012
80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten popular children’s construction toys
forex 70×100 cm

 

The Free Universal Construction Kit is a matrix of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten popular children’s construction toys: Lego, Duplo, Fischertechnik, Gears! Gears! Gears!, K’Nex, Krinkles (Bristle Blocks), Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys, Zome, and Zoob. By allowing any piece to join to any other, the Kit encourages totally new forms of intercourse between otherwise closed systems—enabling radically hybrid constructive play, the creation of previously impossible designs, and ultimately, more creative opportunities for kids. As with other grassroots interoperability remedies, the Free Universal Construction Kit implements proprietary protocols in order to provide a public service unmet—or unmeetable—by corporate interests.
The adapters can be downloaded as a set of 3D models in .STL format, suitable for reproduction by personal manufacturing devices like the inexpensive, open-source 3D printer.

Rita Soccio
2009

stampa digitale su dibond cm 120×160

 

What would happen if all the characters in their advertising is rebel copywriter, the designers that have made them famous and well-known to us who are audiences slave to brands?
The advertising brand, one of the key symbols of the affluent society, goes out of its schemes and tries to enjoy the joys of a real life. Lindo (Mastrolindo) and Stella (Mrs. Star nut) escape from the supermarket shelves and fall in love so they decide to get a family. Soccio Rita tells us their story and their quest for the dream of the average man: fall in love, marry, dress as Adam and Eve, living a “normal” life, then.
With a bit of irony this work reflects the influence of advertising in our life, exchanging the sides.

Bianco-Valente
1997
Stampa Lambda su alluminio 110×90 cm

 

Through the language of video art the artistic duo Bianco-Valente tells stories related to experiences and distant memories as in the case of their video work “giostrina triste.”
With the same approach realize the processing of digital images.
Realy interpretations of flowers, landscapes, in any case beautiful paintings with a strong color intensity.
And it’s quite clear that this is an operation that blends pleasure and intellect.
The work on display is the result. It is a mental landscape taken from a page of a phone directory with a strong communicative power.

tiramolla

Miltos Manetas
1994
Computer drawing 20×30 cm

 

The greek artist always works placing hemisphere inconsistency view through the languages ​​of video art, photography, painting and installation.
He has experienced much in the field of digital capturing obvious and banal images underlining the paradoxes of our daily lives but also those become a part of our DNA (without our knowledge).
It was with this idea that was born the work on display. An image well known to us from childhood, more precisely “Tiramolla,” the protagonist of many comics of our childhood.
