ArsMeteo: artistic forecast art...meeting point for new current..I do not know!
ArsMeteo is a bit of everything..
I studied digital art on books @Uni...I studied it as a post avant-garde in several Biennale of Venice, but today I kind of crashed into
Working, I was browsing on the page of the International Year for Intercultural Dialog and I found a Lab with ArsMeteo project...the home is simply genial to me..a kind of semantic network of concept flying on the work..concepts which bring you to artistic works, movements, currents, tags. It could be an artistic representation of an ontology, where entities fly around connected only by semantic constrains of our minds...where everyone can follow a his personal interpretation in travelling among these concepts..:)
So...have a nice journey.. ArsMeteo!!!

Photo Diary of James Hill

Trying to work on Saturday morning, always brings you reading some news around..:P And this is how I found myself on the trace of the photographer of Between war and Peace , James Hill. Originally English, he is now living in Russia, but travelling around as NY Times photographer. His photodiary in Afghanistan war is really touching, and it brings you in discovering, as rarely happens, these womanish and mannish suffering eyes behind the net of fear.

His spots seems to be stolen in the perfect moment, in the perfect instant in which silence takes the place of the war uproar. Just a moment, a moment of humanity, of living. And in the portrait he steals even more, he steals the angry look of a young lady without Chador, he sees the detail in a crowd.

I am not an expert, I am not a photographer, I just like to write down what I feel...

Let´s call it: "illumination"

For someone is close, for someone is not :), but this exhibition on Futurism seems to be more interesting than the usual "let` s put on a wall a famous name for collecting some money selling gadgets". :P.
At MART of Rovereto is starting a new exhibition on Futurism, where more than a gallery of famous names, there should be an interesting perspective which compare Futurism with other avantgardes of the beginning of the century.
I say it should because I have not seen it, but I read this interesting editorial ( sorry, in Italian :( ) which gives a new point of view.
Every room reflects on the connection of each artistic movement that was fermenting in that period.

Photography - Message of hope

Reading NY Art magazine, I went through an interesting picture..that you can find @ NYARTMagazine. And it let my mind fly!

My work attempts to represent a borderline reality—not marginal, not nearly, but a non-conformist reality. In substance, I imagine animated and non-animated objects in a special zoo made of thoughts and words, and pictures as short existential, emotional, dream stories. I also conceive the concrete; from the leaves, to the wind, to the color of each season... the love, and, the pain… The author

Even a sunflower sometimes doesn't find a reason to look at his sun...but a warm ray is still looking for it, trying to lull it with his light...
