My Christmas 2011 window

I've just completed to decorate the window of my studio. This year I made a tree branch in two pieces: I sketched the form on cardboard, I cutted it and covered it with the most poetic page of newspaper I found. Then I hanged my silver decorations (you can easily make them yourself).

View from the inside
Ho appena finito di addobbare la finestra dello studio. Quest'anno ho costruito un ramo in due pezzi: prima ho disegnato la forma su un cartone di scarto, l'ho ritagliata e rivestita con una pagina di giornale - la più poetica che ho trovato. Poi ho appeso i decori a specchio e argento (se non li avete potete fare anche questi da soli con cartone e carta stagnola).

Lichtfaktor: urban lightwriting

dENiZEN, shine a light for nature
The members of LICHTFAKTOR use light to give expression to their creativity. They take advantage of a variety of light sources to produce photos and videos in cities by night.

The Cologne artists’ collective, consisting of VJ $ehvermögen (photographer and VJ), Visionlabz (Programmer und VJ) and JIAR (communications designer and graffiti artist), experiments with the possibilities yielded by bulb (long-term) exposure and painting. Their aim is to explore all aspects of “lightwriting” and to develop it further. The LICHTFAKTOR crew intentionally uses the entire space in which a particular work is produced and integrates it into their photos and animated films in such a way that it’s not just a backdrop but a part of the work itself.
