Walking City: Architecture + Evolution + Movement

Video

A city is more than an assemblage of buildings and roads and sewer pipe. It is, in its own way, a living, breathing thing. In “Walking City: Architecture + Evolution + Movement,” a video from media design studio Universal Everything, the architecture of a city takes on a life of its own in a spellbinding way.

Taking cues from the work of Archigram, a 1960s avant-garde architecture group, the video follows a human-like figure that morphs into the forms of radical architecture, like Peter Cook’s Plug-In City and Bucky Fuller’s geodesic dome. The title is a nod to The Walking City, a futurist concept first introduced by British architect Ron Herron in the 1960s. Herron anticipated the increasingly mobile nature of contemporary life and proposed an infrastructure of mobile, robotic structures that would move freely and create a society of nomadic cities.

Flour Portraits (2011) by Luca Pierro

The works of Luca Pierro express a micro and macro cosmos,  where the figure of the artist, who is also the one who photographs,  forcefully enters the scene. The protagonist of the portraits is the same photographer. There are shots in his intent to escape the “already  seen “to” already done “. He explores new and unspoiled paths, from the point of origin of man himself, with the use of  natural elements such as: flour, land, water, clay and so on.  All elements that lead back to “Mother Earth”. For the artist is important the traceability of the material used to leave on the surfaces portrayed. 
The body becomes the vehicle of expression. The artist undermines the concept of  traditional portrait (beautiful) to introduce viewers to new dynamics. 
Offers us portraits full of meanings, sometimes with a strong provocation. Some of them put us in touch with the contemporary research in experimental theater. So the artist is able to establish with the viewer an involvement immediate and spontaneous. 
"His image, his body, they become expressive material," we see the real "Metamorphosis", with which he conveys his art. 
The colors used are essential.  The careful study of light evokes her strong spirituality. 
Represents a new and exciting proposal, a new study, which began long ago, the ancient land to the tensions raised by modern man, immersed in a in a culture dominated by technology.
