Cartolina da Bruxelles

Anche in questo caso l'intenzione è stata quella di fermare il tempo, di fissare qualcosa che sarebbe altrimenti scomparso. I bimbi inglesi che vedete nella foto di Robert Frank potrebbero avere oggi l'età dei vostri nonni, dato che avevano sette o otto anni nel 1951. Il fotografo sceglie un angolo, un'inquadratura, non può rappresentare il mondo intero, coglie una posa esattamente come farebbe un pittore. Ma utilizza un'istantanea, 1/50 o 1/125 di secondo, un'unità di tempo minima, neppure paragonabile alla durata di un lavoro pittorico.

The Well Tempered Clavier

In 1722, Johann Sebastian Bach began one of his most ambitious works: a 24-part comprehensive guide to the keyboard, demonstrating the musical qualities of every major and minor key. The first part, C Major, saw Bach create two masterful compositions that explore musical structure in very different ways.
This film draws inspiration from minimalist sculpture and graphical notation, an alternative to traditional sheet music notation that evolved in the 1950s and often involves abstract symbols and experimental visual codes.

Do Ho Suh :: Installations

Korean artist Do Ho Suh draws attention to the ways viewers occupy and inhabit public space. Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, Suh constructs site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity. His work explores the relation between individuality, collectivity, and anonymity (Miwon Kwon - The Other Otherness: The Art of Do Ho Suh).
This film shows some of Suh's artworks displayed in the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. The exhibition was titled PERFECT HOME.
