Dissolvenze

Games of fading and transparency to look inside buildings and to make a fixed image become, a real show. Day and night effects of views and glimpses of cities inspired by Rome.

The idea starts from the study of the optical box, reworking of the "New World", where is the viewer to originate, in a completely analog way, the dissolvenze.

This project is inspired by our series of “Pre-Cinema Digitale” installations that are dedicated to digitizing, bringing back to life, the imagery games that made the discovery of cinema possible ("Reflexes", created for RGB 2019, it was part of it).

 

 

Lea Brugnoli and Anna Torazza, mother and daughter, they work artistically together, looking for works of art related to animation games and optical effects. They explore typically analogue creations which they then re-propose in a digital key. Currently they are dedicated to a series of works concerning pre-cinema games, creating immersive variations, digital and interactive.

Anna he worked for many years for an art and animation workshop for children in Turin, participated in art exhibitions, conducted seminars and training courses of expressive teaching for teachers. His work has been awarded internationally. In 1997 published the book “Image games”. Today he is at the helm of a cinema in the province of Turin, in support of local art and culture.

Lea has developed interdisciplinary works in the field of architecture and cinema, combining them with projection mapping. In recent years she has also performed as a vjing for musicians and events. Now work as a freelancer exhibition designer in the context of exhibitions, exhibitions and performances.

For the sound composition they collaborate with Andrea Spontoni, multimedia artist and composer of electronic music, specialized in sound design and Max / MSP programming for installations, interactive shows and projects.

Bond

The idea for this project starts from the observation of a symbiosis present in nature between the plant and animal world; the cecide, commonly called galla, it is a malformation of the nature of growths, a kind of plant tumor, that forms on the leaves, on the branches, on the trunk and roots of plants caused by insects, mites or fungi to induce the formation of an incubator where the latter entrust their fate for the new life.

Through the work we want to represent harmony, an interaction between two apparently separate worlds but with a deep bond, an invisible harmony, a knowledge developed over time; a dimension of dialogue expressed with a visual language that produces spectacular protuberances with the most varied shapes and colors. In this subtle relationship the human world appears to be alien to it, tied to a simple judgment in the cause and effect that is established between these two worlds; a man who feels separate, far from imagining the existence of a larger design made up of continuous interdependence between living beings through which nature manifests itself.

Because the processes of nature make no sense, they only have an inexorable course that we can interrupt, but without being able to avoid the backlash of nature. In fact, there are two subjectivities in us. One that says “I”, my projects, my expectations, my vision of the world full of meaning, and one that says “nature” and interests of the species, for which the fate of the self, his ideas, its scenarios are not of the slightest importance. " (Galimberti)

Delta process

Overflow

“Overflow” is a site-specific multimedia installation which develops the theme of "Nature" by simulating spatial evolution on the map of Rome and Pigneto, of a very special organism: il Physarum Polycephalum. This particular single-celled mold is endowed with extraordinary intelligence and memory skills – albeit devoid of a nervous system – making it the subject of many scientific and artistic studies.

The map on which the’RGB travels and expands, it is the perfect terrain in which to test the skills of the Physarum, reinterpreted in a situationist key through psychogeographic maps and the drift technique proposed by Guy Debord.

By identifying the places where the RGB truck will pass and stop to screen the works, the system will create the nourishment necessary for the Physarum to evolve, leaving the command of simulation to innate wisdom in basic forms of nature. This suggests that the respect and observation of these processes is essential for a harmonious evolution on the planet.

Groninger Tiles

In the video loop “Groninger Tiles”, Hinrich Gross squeezes together the photos cut from the facade of the Groninger Museum (Netherlands) in quick succession. The suggestion of a movement emerges, a (quasi) similar mockery of the world of pixels, a return of our media viewing habits to the world of the simple physicist. In the soundtrack, the polyphonic signal, always the same polyphonic signal, it overlaps to create a concert of monotony and intensifies the visual overload. For self-rescue, the eye begins to search for higher movement patterns.

A parallel to the current situation is perhaps that we too are looking for new role models. Furthermore, the sound is really annoying, just like the current restrictions of our previously accustomed life.

 

Hinrich Gross is Born in Munich, studied architecture and fine arts in Hamburg.

Quantum Framework

Quantum Framework

Data storming

Today more than ever, data influences our life and our decisions. Just look at how the statistics on the trend of COVID19 have affected future predictions. The graphic visualization of the data makes a constant flow invisible to us tangible and concrete; from our choices to our movements, from our views to our clicks. Form, symbols and numbers follow a very specific logic. From our so-called "clouds" (virtual memory spaces) they overflow data and can no longer contain it securely. “Data Storming”, data storm, intends to provoke the user by proposing a visualization of confused and chaotic data, one without a logical order, but at the same time harmonious and dynamic with each other. Like a flock of birds, sinuous and sudden directions compose shapes continuously
change. A digital painting invades the public space, changing its perception and its context.

Up to here

Through the use of video projections and sounds, the goal is to transform architecture into a bright and dynamic surface, functional to the story.

Not just an action focused on enhancing the facade, but the creation of a continuous dialogue between the architecture and the artist's poetics: the possibility of finding another function for architecture, the relationship between an intimate space (theater) and a common space (the square), the idea of ​​the surface as an element that separates and connects the inside and the outside, the relationship between body and architecture.

Human forms emerge from a deep darkness directed towards us, their impact with the surface (the facade) creates visual and sound distortions.

Lino Strangis

Lino Strangis

All tactful to lose

This audiovision can be read as a metaphorical proposal to show all human contacts (and in particular the tactile ones) that are going to get lost in these times of pandemic, health emergency and distancing. We could perhaps speak of a "representation of a non-being in place" or of visualization of an invisible located in the beyond: no didactic attempt to report facts or gestures that intend to refer directly to the topic; no rhetoric. Only an audiovisual stream designed to invade the walls of the city not to pretend to give answers but in the hope of raising questions.

 

Lino Strangis is an intermediary artist (video art, video installations and video sculptures, virtual reality, performance intermediali, 3D sculptures, video-sets, sound art) experimental musician and director (theater, cinema, tv) born in Lamezia Terme on 19/01/1981, lives and works in Rome and Turin.

Raw Flows (Dancing bodies change the world)

What does it mean to be made of water? How can, this awareness, change the way we perceive ourselves and the world?

Inspired by feminist literature on "bodies of water”, Flavia realizes Raw Flows, a series of four site-specific projections that invite you to imagine and discover forms of water.

Leaving the space for interpretation open and fluid, the artist proposes a series of statements regarding our being water that, between the evocative and the poetic, they hope to foster questions and aspirations.

Made of water, we are less alone. We can rediscover fluids, interconnected with the world and with living beings, with all matter, organic and inorganic. Made of water, we transmute, we are polyform and flexible. We vibrate to the music. (There) we fill and adapt.

With rivers, we are in constant motion, in constant evolution. With the seas, we are moved by the tides, from flows, drives and desires.

Like water (the waters) we are generating matter, we are sustenance, shoots and night frost.

Like water, we are solutes and solvents and we enrich ourselves in the encounter with the other, becoming something new.

Like water we connect, and we flow between differences and across distances.

 

Flavia Tritto (Bari, 1994) is a multidisciplinary visual artist, whose work ranges from video to happening, from installation to performance, to investigate issues related to "individuality", “(inter)subjectivity "and"(auto)perception".

Teatri d'Italia / Life before and after

The video installation “Theaters of Italy” was born in a period in which the show is strongly in crisis, with the ambition to bring theatrical spaces currently closed and not usable by the public or artists to the streets. The sequence of images of some of the most important Italian theaters show majestic spaces of the highest aesthetic value, that our country has the advantage of being able to boast in an incomparable quantity. However, the environment is always empty, on stage as in the hall, so that the celebration of these places of art is accompanied by a sense of loneliness and melancholy, which describes the feeling of waste and abandonment that pervades the entertainment sector when it cannot experience the artistic representations that justify its existence. The video projection is framed by a movement of red light beams, to recall and underline the alarm situation in which the cultural sector finds itself in this period.

 

The project “Life before and after” was created under the influence of the current situation in Italy, and around the world. The general global crisis that has affected all countries has become a moment of transition from the previous life to the future life. The situation in which businesses collapse, people are left without work, the world reigns in a state of general panic and chaos, it will surely remain forever in our memory. And in any situation, no matter how hard it is, there is always an opportunity that can be seen. E, I our case, this opportunity was the transformation and global re-evaluation of values. We started thinking more about family, we began to appreciate our loved ones. Our planet has begun to purify itself. And after going through this terrible period of our life, we can reach a new level of consciousness, and recover the lost values. The project “Life before and after” it was created so that everyone can stop and see new meanings. Feel the power of the most important thing in life: we can love, we can create something new and improve ourselves every day. This project is dedicated to our families, to our friends and companions. This project aims to feel that together we are a force! And we will make it!

The music for the project was chosen by Edoardo Bedarida.

Ellipses 2.0

Beauty, breath, transformation, past that resurfaces to combine with the present, I play with architecture and landscapes.

Simona Verrusio's video works and textual interventions of light art intertwine and interact with the architecture of the buildings and spaces of the locations chosen for the Festival RGB 2020. Multiple interventions inspired by the genius loci of the different places and the link between art and science.

The curves that the east ring road of Rome composes, views from above, they look like sections of wider curves. The trajectories of Lissajous appear by swinging a pendulum, amazing images related to the movement of the earth around the sun and the orbits of the planets. The projection of the sinuous intertwining joins the arches of the bypass. The pillars that support it are dressed in the shapes of Greek columns, with inlaid capitals, to build another place of suggestion and provocation. The poem will echo under the vaults, non stellate, of the ring road, taken from a video from the 1970s by Ansaldo and from 10 June 1962′ by Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Another intervention, more conceptual, bring nature into the parking in via Ludovico Pavoni of Torpignattara, playing with the architecture of the buildings. The two neighboring buildings form a large capital letter U, which is embedded in the word “flower beds”. Flower beds to symbolically carry a piece’ of nature within the urban setting. Flower beds – single word in Italian with all vowels- it is also a tribute to Dante and the Earth when he writes “The flowerbed that makes us so ferocious,.., it all appeared to me from’ colli a le foci ”referring precisely to the Earth seen from Paradise.

Sulle great constructions of the skyscrapers of the EUR a visual play between the unfinished vertical lines of the buildings and the continuous transformation of curved lines, described by the complex mathematical function of Mandelbrot.

Finally to the San Galli park the image of a young Ninetto Davoli will run, as he did in the Uccellacci Uccellini film, on the aqueduct, while the trees in the park will be illuminated with a splendid green and the lawn will become a black and white checked floor. A scenario that echoes De Chirico's metaphysical paintings, creating a new and other urban space through the lighting intervention. Other pictures: houses and huts built against the aqueduct in the 1970s, photo by Roberto Ciavoni, and blue waters with bodies in embrace for the nostalgia of contact linked to the times we are living in and the water that flowed in the aqueduct.

 

Simona Verrusio aka Vj Janus deals with theater, performance e video. He loves different artistic languages ​​and explores their boundaries and connections. E’ the creator of the www.mapparte.com platform that geolocates places and rooms for creative use, to facilitate the meeting between those looking for spaces for artistic activities and those who have the availability. Since 2011 conducts performance theater workshops, and poetry and movement workshops on Japanese short poetry (haiku). Founded, in 2016, the cultural association 'bare feet' (https://www.facebook.com/piedinudiaps//), first as a physical space, a room, now flying over various places of art. He has patented a traveling performative technological device: a technological mask called Vj Janus that he wears and with which he makes traveling video performances. Vj Janus shoots what he sees through a camera and projects it in real time on a screen placed on the performer's back. In 2018 with VJ Janus he participated in the RGB Light Festival International Festival with the Itertime project, mixing images of the past and the present. He has published two books co-written with Alter: the first 'The Dense Host - the labyrinth of power' and the second 'Io Tarzan, your date'.
