Another part of the EMEE exhibition concerned all the objects selected by the european museum curators. This exhibition has been later exposed in the other partner institutions around Europe.

music artworks: plasticrane


Plasticrane Productions is an independent netlabel with a focus on lo-fi experimental music in all its forms: electronic, noise, industrial, ambient, drone, post-rock, and more. It was founded in Modena, Italy, in 2008. All the music released via Plasticrane is - and will always be - free. I am Plasticrane's creative director since its foundation, and I designed (almost) all the artworks: cover, posters, booklets.

pixelife: an experimental project in digital art


pixelife #1: uncertainty in technology

The first part of pixelife tells a quite common story: the difficulty and frustration of maintaining long-distance relationships, even today, despite the level of technological progress that the world has reached. In April 2013, during some video calls with friends on skype, my connection crashed many times: though it was still possible to talk, but without the video. The only thing you were able to see was a background of glitched pixels. Here some screenshots that perfectly reveal the fascinating complexity of the contemporary world.

screenshot date: 2013-04-06 at 12.51.03 screenshot date: 2013-04-06 at 12.52.03 screenshot date: 2013-04-07 at 17.31.08 self-pixelation on Skype
screenshot date: 2013-04-06 at 12.51.35 screenshot date: 2013-04-07 at 15.29.33 screenshot date: 2013-04-13 at 15.32.20



pixelife #2: memories from a planned future

The second part of pixelife keeps exploring the connections between memories and uncertainty. past and future are here shaken through the lens of technology: the pixelation of pictures reveals the absence of sharpness typical of both our memories (past) and dreams (future?). The second part of the pixelife project explores the peculiar view of the future experienced by east european countries during the second half of the 20th century: what historians and architects calls 'an unfinished modernisation'. here some pictures directly from my personal analog memories of east european landscapes, originally taken with an old, manual and mechanic camera, then printed, scanned and remixed through a pixelation process.

pixelife #3: metropolitan nightscapes

The third part of pixelife goes further deep into the relationship between memories and uncertainty. The City and the Night: tales of empty, dark and uncertain spaces.
