Kikito, the child of JR who defies the Trump’policies

Kikito, the child of JR who defies the Trump’policies

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

A two years old child, dark hair, long lashes climbs up a wall to see what’s on the other side.
His name is Kikito and like so many other children, won’t play on any kind of wall but on the one built by Donald Trump to block the arrival of migrants.

The enormous photography, by the French artist JR, rises along the border between Mexico and San Diego and, since it cannot rest on the U.S. side of the barrier, it finds its foundations on a small plot of land belonging to a family in which Kikito is the smallest exponent.

The work, which will remain visible for a whole month, was born as a criticism to the US president that abolished the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the system of protection for minors children of irregular immigrants.

Anna Roberts paints daydream-like scenerios

Anna Roberts paints daydream-like scenerios

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

That you can dream while staying awake is something we are certain about.
That we can dream while wandering in never-seen places by feeding our imagination is a certainty of the painter and illustrator Anna Roberts.

Inspired by her unique travels, her works are full of common places and situations featured in soft pastel colors on cotton papers.

Normality reigns in her paintings that tell about simple towns, their breeze, their coffee, their way of life, and the passing world.

Peaceful, silent and a bit romantic feelings, as if not only in the absurd we can find the inspiration to release your own art.

Short video for Breakfast – First and Final Frames, first and last seconds of the most famous films ever

Short video for Breakfast – First and Final Frames, first and last seconds of the most famous films ever

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Have you ever tried to watch a film focusing only on the first and last scene?
In other words, jumping off everything that tells it in detail?
Probably not, because that is not something that makes much sense.

Unless, like Jacob T. Swinney, you are moved by the curiosity to know why certain choices are made instead of others.
Film essayist and director, he wanted to do this experiment to understand the differences and similarities between the first and last seconds of 55 films among the most loved ones ever.
You can find them all in First and Final Frames, and since we know it is impossible to recognize them all below you can also find the list in order of appearance.

Have fun.

The little people project, the micro street art of Slinkachu

The little people project, the micro street art of Slinkachu

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

About Slinkachu we only know the name of art, the origin of London, the year of birth, 1979, and the profession: street artist.
But, despite the few details about his person, his micro works have become famous all over the world for their irony and the importance of their function.

The little people project, this is the name of the project that has made him famous, is a set of site-specific mini works that the artist has scattered through the streets of the world with the aim of raising public awareness on two different fronts: the estrangement that we feel in large cities and the pollution with which we now live.

Its microcosms represent situations of the real world from a different point of view, underlining both our inability to realize what surrounds us, but also the little interest we have in finding intelligent solutions to problems that, day after day, become increasingly important.

“I like the idea that almost nobody sees my work because we all ignore, intentionally or not, what surrounds us in a city.”

House of Eternal Return, the Meow Wolf’house which opens its doors to infinite realms

House of Eternal Return, the Meow Wolf’house which opens its doors to infinite realms

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

For a few years, the small mountain town of Santa Fe hides a secret straight out of science fiction.
An unassuming building in the city’s industrial district is a nexus of colorful, chaotic portals that take explorers to worlds they’ve only seen in their wildest dreams or, more likely, in some films.

Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return is an artistic experience, unique in its kind, characterized by a new and surprising form of non-linear narration that develops through exploration, discovery and interactivity typical of the 21st century.

The House is a 20,000 square metre art exhibition designed by the collective Meow Wolf and funded by George R. R. Martin, author and co-producer of the television series Games of Thrones.

There are dozens of rooms, secret passages, interactive lights and objects with which guests can play for hours or investigate the mystery of the Selig family, which disappeared one night after conducting a forbidden experiment within their Victorian home characterized by unexpected passages, the refrigerator, fireplace, bathroom, beds and many others, which open up paths connected to other worlds and other times.
There are more than 70 interconnected spaces that connect the attic to the rooms below the ground, so many paths that visitors can take to discover them all and, despite some horror turn-offs, the installation is suitable for everyone.

The only thing really impossible inside this house seems to be to discover it all.
