Work in progress...
One of the most interesting things about working in a virtual world is the avatar's interaction with the project that is being realized. The possibility of turning the work, or the cam, to modulate the transparency and the light amplifies the interaction and emotional suggestions. One of the things I love to do while I work is to take snapshots from different angles. Looking at myself in the work and photographing me... almost disappearing in the work. The possibilities are endless, as well as the post-production work of the photos taken. Quality is not always the best, (I'm not a photographer, unfortunately) but certainly contribute to entering what is imaginary or emotional history that comes to life, it turns at the same time suggesting intersections.
These are the first snapshots taken mentro'm working on my next work. Others will follow, in order to build a sort of diary of the path that I follow in implementing the project.
The work was inspired by the plight of child brides, a global scourge that affects several countries of the world. . Each year, 15 million girls are married before the age of 18. That is 28 girls every minute – married off too soon, endangering their personal development and wellbeing. With more young people on our planet than ever before, child marriage is a human rights violation that we must end to achieve a fairer future for all.
Many are those who fight against the marriage union between children and adults. Among these it should be mentioned Kriti Bharti, who thanks to his charity organization "Saarthi Trust", has been able to ensure the setting aside 29 marriages and helped in the rehabilitation over 6 thousand children and more than 5 thousand women.
Monochrome is part of a series of works focused on the exploration of color in all its components and inferences.
The installation can be considered an arrival point of an itinerary thatbegan with Synesthesia (http://giovannacerise.blogspot.it/2012/07/synesthesiasplit-screen.html) and with participation at " The cube project" (http://giovannacerise.blogspot.it/2012/08/th-cube-project-lea.html) but it is certainly a starting point for further development of this research work.
The installation is structured on three levels, each dedicated to a color. The choice of black, white and red was dictated by my passion for these colors that evoke a multitude of contrasting references, in agreement or in continuation with each other.
Since the purpose of the work was to focus the attention emotional - mental on color I chose to use like almost exclusive form the cube-modulated transparency and shadows, entering at the same time the elements that we can define noise, clarifiers, complementary, subordinate depending on your point of view that they can assume for each.
The invitation, then, is to experience the different possibilities of light and ambience offering the virtual world. Single color it takes on different aspects and nuances almost endless and the effects increase and multiply, creating a restless disorientation.
