FANTASY

It's the engine towards what we think the future could be, it sets the ground for speculation

Walter Pichler

"Portable living room" 1967

SYNTHESIS

It's the moment when a vocabulary with a common ground is shaped. We start to create our tools for a clearer vision of the fantasy. A reduction of unnecessary elements for a sharable vision, will define a specific reality for our project.

Costantin Brancusi

The infinite column

DESIRE

It's the moment where a fantasy starts to have a shape to be defined into something more concrete. in order to desire something it needs to have a shape, a face, it needs to start to exist.

CRISIS

It's the moment of negotiation, not only with your colleagues and clients but as well with your own principles, desires and ambitions.

They are constraints that we have to be able to transform into qualities and advantages instead of compromises.

An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus

"Homo Urbanus is a cinematic odyssey offering a vibrant tribute to what we have been most cruelly deprived of: namely, public space.
Taking the form of a free-wheeling journey around the world (10 films, 10 cities), the project invites us to observe in detail the multiple forms and complex interactions that exist every day between people and their urban environments.

Somewhere between visual anthropology and observational cinema, these films put urban man under the microscope and encourage us to take a closer look at individual and collective behaviour, interpersonal dynamics, social tensions, and the economic and political forces that play out every day on the grand stage of the city streets.

These films explore our condition as a human animal and the way in which the city—this artificial environment that we build around us every day like an extension of our contemporary bodies—shapes and conditions us. Yaken on the fly, these visual notes look at urban man not only within his group but also in the depths of his solitude, redesigning the outlines of the city according to a kind of emotional geography. More than mapping out an area, the idea is to allow a city to speak through the ways in which it is used, in order to show the shifting nature of its human landscape and to understand what local singularities remain in the context of the wholesale globalisation of our urban lifestyles. By assembling these different films, this installation looks at cities as unique responses to the global challenge of living together.

Residents of Hong Kong have 2.7 square metres per person of public space, slightly larger than a coffin or a toilet cubicle.

Singapore at half of the size of Hong Kong has 7.4 square metres  of urban public space per capita.

New York, also known for its high land price, has over 10 square metres.

COMMUNICATION

setting up a strategic frame

How to put many pieces of information together, communicating a lot of complexities to a broad audience?

Did you know Toyota was actually a looming company at the beginning?

"We pull the architect's ideas apart to reassemble them together for the purpose of communication.

We look at it from the audience point of view, which often means REDUCING the amount of information you try to convey down to the most critical elements."

The importance of communication to

improve experience

Build the Narrative first and design the tech around it.

You need to allow people to enter a piece of information from many different levels.

This doesn't mean dumbing everything down, but it means considering HOW audience engage with information and build your communication strategy around it.

Embedding the idea of a project into its process
unnamed (3).jpg

We have come increasingly to forget that our minds are shaped by the bodily experience of being in the world; its spaces, textures, habits. The work explores the ordinary act of walking; to make sense of the world and myself. Reading the paper landscape of the map, and seeing it come to life through the combined activities of thinking and discovering while walking. Working with close up photos, coupled with the act of collecting, and subsequent photographing of these specimens in my studio, I create a mapping of where my eye and hand wander, a dialogue between the physical body and the path.

MAPS

A two-dimensional depiction of a

three-dimensional condition.

In the '800 maps were much more "representative" , closer to paintings, as they were drawn from direct observation of nature.

In the 1950s, maps started to be drawn from aerial photos instead, becoming an extracted graphic representation in a 2D line drawing.

BTW Check the amazing work of  ScanLAB

This is a question of representation. Twice a day, twelve hours apart, a new image of Earth is scanned and saved by the Soumi National Polar Partnership satellite and its sensors. The 1:30 p.m. daytime image, assembled from data gathered over a number of days, shows a cloudless Blue Marble. The 1:30 a.m. nighttime image, similarly composited, forms a Black Marble, a cloudless view of lights across the planet. The sensors can observe light in extraordinary detail, all the way to the level of a traffic lamp or a fishing boat. According to NASA, “the sum of these measurements gives us a global view of the human footprint on the Earth.”

a mural

is art that is not meant to last

a canvas is a permanent record

"Street art is not an art movement, it’s a cultural phenomenon.

When perceived in such a wide context, is it better to just remove walls, sell them and keep them in museums, or should we allow for street art to remain what it essentially is -

an ephemeral mirror

of currents of the moment? "
