Intro: 

There’s a part of us that reminds into cyberspace while we are “AFK”, and that part grows breaded by social techs. It’s our “ghost” conforming our virtual community footprint, a new kind of human heritage. But, how is this going to evolve in the future?

Lacrime nella Pioggia installation follows, into one of those possible futures, the inner evolution and awakening of Bruna Husky, a replicant, in the city of Madrid on 2109.

Concept:

Lacrime nella Pioggia, the book of Rosa Montero that inspires this installation, is one of those big stories, on the line of Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, that can imagine a realistic future with sense, closer to our present time in the important debates of the life (rights, life and death, love, memory,…) probably because Rosa Montero, the author, it’s also a journalists and she has that clinic eye for the analysis. It’s also a story about an inner evolution, acceptation and conciliation of oneself held by it’s mean character, Bruna Husky.

It’s a rich and complex story, so here I’ve just done an approach to Bruna, to her evolution along the story. I have other 2 installations, small ones, based on the “story behind the story” of Lacrime nella Pioggia: Future Communities (for the SL9B) and Alien Humanity (for the UWA’s Challenge). The 1st one acts like a pre-story and the second concludes the circle.

Arte Libera

Parole (Words) e Mondi (Worlds) sono i temi che fanno da sfondo all’evento che Libriamo Tutti e Accademia di Brera, in collaborazione con IF2012 Immagina il Futuro, hanno organizzato per sabato 30 giugno, alle ore 10.30.

Parole: perché abbiamo chiesto ad alcuni artisti digitali di creare delle opere d’arte, ispirandosi ad opere letterarie.
Mondi: perché, per ammirare le opere d’arte, metteremo in collegamento mondi virtuali e mondi fisici, facendo dialogare avatar che popoleranno la sede virtuale dell’Accademia di Brera in Second Life, con appassionati di arte e di letteratura che si incontreranno invece nella sede fisica dell’Accademia.
Un sodalizio fra arte letteraria e arte figurativa che trova il suo punto di incontro nell’utilizzo delle nuove tecnologie offerte da internet, per stimolare la condivisione e l’interazione, annullando le distanze fra artisti, lettori e spettatori.

Durante l’incontro la lettura di testi e racconti si integrerà con l’esplorazione e la scoperta…
