Laundry Art, a poetic project by Ho Wing Ka Jimmi

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

Doing laundry is not simply a monotonous act that is part of the daily routine, but becomes the mirror of the customs and traditions of a particular culture, must have thought this artist Ho Wing Ka Jimmi while making his photographic project Laundry Art.

Ho‘s works explore themes such as landscape architecture, society, and human behavior. Hong Kong is the fourth most populated city on the planet and that’s why it has a large number of skyscrapers, but in this case, the artist has chosen to look down.

After a few attempts, Ho focused his research on one of the most common gestures of everyday life, transforming it into a way to represent the unique Hong Kong scenario. The order, the sequence of the clothes and the great attention to detail make us perceive the presence of man, without ever revealing it completely.

The result is shown below.

Berlin, Diane Meyer’s embroidered photographic project

Berlin, Diane Meyer’s embroidered photographic project

Anna Cardaci · 1 month ago · Photography

Photographer Diane Meyer has spent the last few years meditating on the Berlin Wall and the physical and visual divisions between cultures and people. This led to the idea of creating Berlin, a photographic project in which the artist embroiders meticulous stitches with a needle and thread that cover pedestrians, walls, and forests. Each embroidered area represents the old wall, which would have cut or blocked the views now seen in Meyer’s photographs.

The project was born to combine a traditional analogical process with the visual language of the digital image. Diane Meyer has tried to evoke how this continues to be a much-needed presence in the German city today, despite the fact that it was demolished 30 years ago.

Reinserting the Berlin Wall through the embroidery, you see a pixelated view of what lies behind, creating the effect of an almost ghostly trace in the landscape. The materials used by the artist have evolved over time, from direct photography to more multimedia approaches.
His work has long been defined by explorations of the physical, social and psychological qualities that characterize the place. The images of the Berlin project were taken in the city center and in the suburbs where Diane literally followed the old route of the wall to the outskirts of the city.

Thanks to the embroidery this appears as a translucent trace in the landscape of something that no longer exists, but is a burden on history and memory. For the 30th anniversary of the fall of the wall, the exhibition will be open to the public until January 10, 2020, at the Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

The beauty of the women immortalized by the Ukrainian photographer Sofiia Lupul is characterized by a strong taste for detail and nuance. One of the strengths of her images is the emphasis on the languid and sensual gaze, which attracts the viewer, who is enchanted by it. There are also scenes dedicated to the female body, celebrated in its sinuous harmony of forms.

The warm tones of red and orange contribute to conveying a sense of intimacy and delicacy, which is highlighted by details such as, for example, the lace of a brief, the light that caresses the body, a rose held in the hand.

Eutierria, Sanja Marusic’s joyful images

Eutierria, Sanja Marusic’s joyful images

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

Eutierria means to become one with nature and this is exactly what happens in the series of homonymous images made by the photographer and art-director Dutch-Croatian Sanja Marusic. The artist, born in 1991, loves to experiment with the thousand potentialities of color in combination with the harmony of the human body and, more generally, we can define her approach to visual culture as extremely versatile.

Her scenes are dreamlike, psychedelic but at the same time alienating, able to play with our subconscious. For the realization of the project, Sanja placed her models “assembling” them in combination with the surrounding environment: some images were taken on the site with the help of professional make-up artists, others were manipulated in post-production. The result is a series of photographs with an alien mood.

Recently the artist decided to strengthen her aesthetic research through the medium of video, collaborating with several musicians.

Matrix 4: Neo and Trinity will return in May 2021

Matrix 4: Neo and Trinity will return in May 2021

UPDATE 12 DECEMBER
Habemus data! Warner Bros. has finally announced the release date of Matrix 4: May 21st, 2021!
It seems that May 21st, 2021, will be the day of Keanu Reeves, who in addition to being released in cinemas as Neo, will return in the role of John Wick in the fourth chapter of the saga.

After a wait that lasted just under twenty years, Warner Bros finally confirmed it: Matrix 4 getting made and shooting should start by 2020.

Writing and directing the 4th chapter of the science fiction series will be Lana Wachowski in collaboration with Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell, great absentee Lilly Wachowski who will not work alongside her sister as it was for the first three episodes, released at the cinema between 1999 and 2003, and for the series Sense8.

The film will still feature Neo and Trinity, inevitably played by Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, while Laurence Fishburne’s involvement as Morpheus, the saga’s third cornerstone, is still uncertain.
At the moment no relevant information has yet been leaked on the plot, the setting and the link with the first three films but the fans’ expectation is really hight.
The news about the new episode has, in fact, divided public opinion between those who couldn’t wait any longer and those who think that the end of the third episode did not leave room for new beginnings.

While we wait for new information we suggest you to start to review, in America, on the occasion of the anniversary of the release of the first chapter “The Matrix” you can do it at the cinema, in Italy no circuit has joined the event but nothing prevents you from doing the same by yourself.
