PRESENCE, the interactive exhibition that shows the impact of man on Earth

PRESENCE, the interactive exhibition that shows the impact of man on Earth

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

The Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde, in collaboration with the Groninger Museum, has designed and created PRESENCE, an exhibition that develops into many interactive installations whose aim is to make the viewer understand the true extent and impact of the presence of man on Earth. 

From a practical point of view, PRESENCE consists of rooms in which neon lights change according to how many people there are, floors covered with luminous spheres including walking, on which to lie down and leave your mark. Roosegaarde’s work not only makes a theme that has become increasingly problematic and hot in recent years more concrete and palpable but also overturns the concept of an art gallery. 

Usually, when we enter a museum the first rule is not to touch the works, not to get too close, but here we are called to get in touch, making our gesture a work of art (destructive). The relationship that is established between the spectator and the work is unique, a relationship that stimulates mutual growth: while man creates the work, the work creates man, or at least increases his awareness. 

PRESENCE will be open until January 12, 2020.

The fourth edition of FAT FAT FAT Festival is about to begin

The fourth edition of FAT FAT FAT Festival is about to begin

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

You can’t download the experience. This is the slogan, but also the starting point of the FAT FAT FAT Festival, an event that for two days, from 2 to 4 August, will attract some of the most famous names related to Black Music. 

We’re talking about personalities like the dj and producer Moodyman and Shigeto, exponent of the new American Hip-Hop. Among the most awaited live shows we point out the “sound artist” and instrumental composer Hieroglyphic Being. There are many names on the bill and each of them will be called to create a unique experience, which can only be experienced live, with the phone off and the senses open, following the claim “You can’t download the experience”.

It is precisely from this concept that this year’s communication campaign, curated by the Mine Studio in Rome, came to life. The objective of the campaign is to tell through a series of images the places that host the FAT FAT FAT Festival, or rather the places of Grancia and Morrovalle, and to put the emphasis on the history of these places and their gastronomic traditions. 

The final result is a series of photographs of these landscapes with a colored rectangle or square in the center. 

“The geometric quadrilateral shape, symbol of stability, stasis, definition, has been chosen to contrast with everything that is the festival, a fluid, moving, energetic event.”

Obviously, the presence of this element hinders our view, we can not see the entire landscape of photography, this is precisely because the FAT FAT FAT Festival can only be experienced live. 

“In the photographic campaign the monochrome geometric element has been photographed in landscapes that characterize the geography of the place: mountains, woods, hills, expanses of wheat or beaches, and the element, always positioned centrally, is a barrier to the enjoyment of the landscape by hindering the vision, this choice stems from an exasperation of the claim of the festival “you can’t download the experience”, inviting the user to experience the context in person and not just use it exclusively through the media.”

Digital Supernova 2019, Miguel Chevalier’s installation combines science and art

Digital Supernova 2019, Miguel Chevalier’s installation combines science and art

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

In the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Rodez, a small village two hours drive north-east of Toulouse, the artist Miguel Chevalier has managed to recreate the complexity of the cosmos with the installation Digital Supernova 2019

Between the gothic vaults of the cathedral, just below the ceiling, 30 different grids of colored lights recreate a small section of the universe, with explosions and remains of a supernova, and that change every two minutes. 

The creation of Digital Supernova 2019 was made possible thanks to Miguel, but also to Fabio Acero, an astrophysicist specializing in the remains of supernova and nebulae, with whom the artist worked arm in arm. The installation is the result of Chevalier’s technical and artistic skills and some unpublished documents provided by Acero, but also of the unique dialogue that is created between technology and architecture. 

Digital Supernova 2019 will be visible to the public from 8 to 18 August in which half of the days will be accompanied by music by Jacopo Bobini Schilingi and for the rest of the days will be accompanied by musical performances by the two organists Frédéric Deschamps and Adam Bernadac

Tommy Shelby’s coming back. Watch the trailer for the fifth season of Peaky Blinders!

Tommy Shelby’s coming back. Watch the trailer for the fifth season of Peaky Blinders!

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

There’s God and there are the Peaky Blinders. This is the opening of the highly anticipated trailer for the fifth season of Peaky Blinders released by BBC One

The fourth season of the series was aired in 2017, since then, in addition to the fact that it will reach the seventh season, it has been known very little and the trailer for the fifth season comes like a lightning bolt in the clear sky. 

Looking at the video it seems that all this waiting will not have been in vain. The new season will have as a springboard the financial crisis of 1929, one of the darkest periods of the last century that has represented for some an irreversible misfortune and for others the opportunity they had been waiting for some time. 

In this not easy climate, the new Member of Parliament Tommy Shelby always played masterfully by Cillian Murphy, comes into contact with another politician, whose shoes are dressed by Sam Claflin (Hunger Games, Me Before You). Soon, Tommy will understand that his behavior towards him could affect not only his family’s future but even that of the entire country. 

The main theme is always the inner battle that tears apart the head of the Peaky Blinders who tries in every way to redeem himself, although fate has other plans for him. 

Alongside Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson will also return as Aunt Polly and Arthur Shelby respectively. 

The trailer reveals a lot of things, but there is still no official release date. We’ll have to wait a little longer.

Teetertotter Wall, the US-Mexico border demolished by pink swings

Teetertotter Wall, the US-Mexico border demolished by pink swings

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

Its construction began in 1990 and since then, in addition to having lengthened excessively, the Wall between the United States and Mexico is a subject that infuriates many, others put it at the center of their election campaigns, half of Americans talk about it to be able to criticize even more heavily the policy of Trump. 

In the middle of the arid landscape of California, Arizona and New Mexico stands the wall that divides not only two countries, but cultures and people, sometimes cutting cities in half, like El Paso.

It is right next to the latter, in Sunland Park, that the two architects and university professors Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello have created the Teetertotter Wall, an installation, or perhaps much more, a symbol. 

The design of the Teetertotter Wall began in 2009, but only a few days ago its construction was finally completed. It’s no more than three pink swings – or balances to be more precise – placed exactly in the middle of the wall, half of which appear in Mexico and half in the United States. 

The meaning of this work was explained on Instagram by the authors themselves: 

“The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. – Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.”

Thus the wall between the U.S.A. and Mexico was torn down by a swing, but also by the voices and laughter of the children.
