u2, no line on the horizon

This is the cover from the U2 album "No line on the horizon". The picture is composed by a Huroshi Sugimoto photo and a mathematical symbol. It's very interesting the words play between the tytle of the CD, the minus and the pic.

However, I ADORE Hiroshi Sugimoto. I already knew him because of my research about minimalism during my second year of Marangoni Fashion Institute. Moreover, I saw some of his works on th inside on Tate Modern Gallery in London, in the "series section". It's so exciting when I discover an artist or something particular, and then I find it casually in a museum or something else. And it's starting to happen more and more frequently!!

One of Sugimoto favourite subjects is the sea, just sea and sky, drawed in balck and white, and during different weather and atmosphere conditions.

rendering urban invasion

In one of my older post, I show you one of my second year work that I've done for my school. This photographic work is based on three concepts: street art, installation and Christo & Jeanne-Claude land art.
I put some of these pictures into my concept book, making a render of each photos, in order to make them coherent with the rest of the book.

This photo is part of a photoshooting inside Juke Magazine, that I found for free in a club in London.
Very street style, it's what I like. I wish I could work in man's fashion.

This is what I like about my country. The welcoming atmosphere, the rustic feeling, the sea, the nature... a friendly and warm home.

multisensorial stimulation

Today I listened the song from Donnie Darko soundtrack, "Mad World".
I found it so pervasive and emotional, so evocative... and strangely, I found this cover better than the original one (by Tears for fears).

So...try to listen to the music, understand the lyrics and at the same time sink with your gaze into the image above.
I think it can cause at least few minutes of reflections.
