EARTH’S SHAMPOO

EARTH’S SHAMPOO

Our planet has a serious problem: dandruff. It’s enough to take a look at this picture to realize how much of this stuff is hovering above our blue scalp. This is just a first layer of low-orbit satellites, placed at an heigth between 300 and 1200 miles. They represent 80% of the flying barrels circling ... Read More »

SEX, MONEY, BLOOD.

SEX, MONEY, BLOOD.

THE TAX MAN. In July 2009 a team of archaeologists led by Scott Rubazky, appointed professor of Natural History at the Virginia University, discovered a fossil that is going to re-write the history of evolution. The 500,000 year old specimen (pictured above) is probably the great-grandfather – and godfather – of every kind of bloodsucker ... Read More »

THE ENERGY FOR ALL OF ASS.

THE ENERGY FOR ALL OF ASS.

Oil prices are going to grow steadily in the near future. Nuclear power, after Japan, will be turned off, and what we are left with is just a fistful of alternative sources lke solar panels, hydroelectric dams and – well –  Earth Wind & Fire, which is probably the most efficient of the three. Fortunately ... Read More »

AN INVISIBLE SUCCESS

AN INVISIBLE SUCCESS

After attending several creative writing courses in New York, London, Paris and Creazzo, after reading all the masters of immortal literature for years and years,  I finally published my first novel. I have been working hard on it, trying to apply all the rules and tricks I learnt from James Wood (How fiction works) Raymond ... Read More »

THE MAGIC TREE

THE MAGIC TREE

The Magic Tree was a painting I did a few years ago for a place which welcomed orphans and children victims of parents’ abuse. The concept is a tridimensional painting with real golden fruits growing out of the wall, as if the tree were a real one. I added some secret drawers (visible hanging from ... Read More »

DON’T DRINK AND RIDE

DON’T DRINK AND RIDE

Personal work against the habit of DRINKING AND RIDING which – by the way – kills, every year, almost one million bikers around the world. Read More »

THE SANDMAN

THE SANDMAN

On May 2009, Jim created what was billed as the largest drawing in the world as wide as Manhattan on the vast stretches of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. The 48-year old sand artist spent two weeks drawing on the beds of the dried Salt Lake in May producing this largest work of art then. In ... Read More »

THE ABYSS OF YOURSELF

THE ABYSS OF YOURSELF

This is the Bessel crater, as seen from the Apollo 15 spacecraft. Huge craters like this one are the result of big meteorites impacting on lunar soil. The energy produced by such collision is unmeasureable but it’s strong enough to change a satellite’s trajectory. This one is another crater recently found on planet Mars, shot ... Read More »

THE POWER OF BRANDS 4

THE POWER OF BRANDS 4

Brands, this time, are placed into a ‘geo’ contest as if signing a place in the planet. The strategic territory becomes a metahpor of the physical and mental space we have chosen for each of them. Read More »

FASHION VICTIM

FASHION VICTIM

I took the liberty to retouch existing photos for this subject: fashion victims. I was struck, recently, by the conflict between war pictures and fashion. You turn one page and you shift from a photo of a guy who lost both legs in Afghanistan, to a model on a Rolls Royce, posing on stiletto heels ... Read More »

WHITE ON WHITE

WHITE ON WHITE

This is a minimalist bag by Celine. A white on white that reminds me of Malevic’s famous painting of the white canvas on white background. This is the empty space you can fill with your imagination or, as a humble alternative, leave it as it is, completely untouched. Fashion adopts themes from other forms of ... Read More »
