As we know it, pencils are usually used to create visions on flat surfaces, obviously according to the artist’s discretion. Mr.Ghetti positions himself at the antithesis of banality by sculpting the tips of pencils thus transforming them in art themselves. With an impressive workmanship and artistry in miniature, Ghetti carves these tools as if they were life-size objects and the result is literally breathtaking.
It’s an algorithmic collage, (based on voronoi tessellation algorithm). The photographs are actually by Kelly Castro from the portrait series Exteriors. Click on http://moebio.com/loveispatient/ to see the actual animation of what would simply be classic pictures. The animation collage is applied and produced by Santiago Ortiz.
Artist Statement: ” Beyond literal photography, I believe in stories. I have always found it interesting how placing someone in a space in a certain way can inspire a narrative. My main interest lies in the relationship that is created between a figure and its surroundings, and I am particularly drawn to quiet moments when everything seems still “.
Aren’t these photographs products of modern soft-hyperrealism? Still frames of a David Lynch movie yet to come.
What Jump Rope actually is, is the hardcore version of rope skipping except we are not talking ponytails and blonde girly girls but real rope-skipping break dancers! Endurance, strength, agility, rhythm, balance and coordination, are just a few of the necessary characteristics in order to master this frog-crazy practice.

” I always had this nightmare of aging without realising it was happening, to just realise one day how time has slipped out of my hands and that I’m late. I came to New York to see whether I can become what I think I am. If I won’t make it I will have learnt who I am and will finally be at peace.“ D.B. interview on http://www.notiziedanewyork.com/2009/07/davide-balliano-new-york-e-la-milano.html
Babydisco press review on L’Officiel Hommes Italia: ” An only-for-kids project in Milan’s Dopolavoro gallery. The installation was conceived with the aim to stimulate the child towards new multisensorial experiences, based upon the interaction with sound, colours and lights to be lived as an extension of his innate desire to play. A multicoloured disco ball, djs dressed up as rabbits, shiny stars and games flavoured by music, all had an essential role in entertaining the little ones, who happily free from parents and babysitters, had the chance to enjoy the exhilerating experience of a baby version of clubbing. An invitation and a stimulus to take advantage of the educational potential of music united with artistic creativity”. Susanna Cucco
A silent film directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow and the first movie adaption based on Lewis Carroll’s book. Only one copy of the original film exists to date, and parts of it are lost. The British Film Institute has partially managed to restore the movie and its original colours. To actually imagine the use of special effects and vanguard techniques over 100 years old is incredible. This is truly a 9 minute wonder!
