Hey guys!
Sorry, it’s been such a long time since i wrote a post… i’m a full time mom now of a wonderful little ten months old boy, i’m so happy and busy at the same time, i wish i would have eight arms as the picture above! “The Black hole”…It’s about an art book for my friends of Edizioni Fantasma, …”this is the idea: get a book, recreate it and make it circulate as an object of your art”… I hope you’ll like it :)

Per gli amici italiani, IMPORTANTISSIMO! il 12 e il 13 giugno non dimenticate di andare a votare!

VOTA SI se sei contro la privatizzazione della gestione del servizio idrico.
VOTA SI se vuoi abrogare il comma 1 dell’art. 154 del D.L. n° 152/2006 che autorizza il gestore dell’acqua ad ottenere dei profitti garantiti sulla tariffa, caricando la bolletta dei cittadini di un 7% in più senza un collegamento a logiche di reinvestimento per il miglioramento qualitativo del servizio.
VOTA SI se pensi che investire nell’energia nucleare sia costoso, pericoloso e non risolutivo.
VOTA SI per abrogare parte della Legge n° 51/2010, se volete sostenere il principio che la legge è uguale per tutti, senza eccezioni.

is a combined puppet and live action feature based on a 
child’s fantasy. A seven year old boy whose teddy bear Kooky has been

Chiba, Pupe, 2009 mixed media on bristol paper

La larva (termine che in latino significa maschera) è un embrione animale che conduce vita libera e che diventerà adulto attraverso una o più metamorfosi che possono essere drastiche o graduali.

La larva ha spesso sembianze completamente differenti dall’individuo adulto e può passare attraverso vari stadi di trasformazione.

Finita anche questa quarta edizione del Crack!….quest’anno davvero uau…oltre cento autori, nessuna selezione, tanta genuinità, tanta qualità e tante tantissime persone di tutti i tipi e moltomolto curiose, nessun ordine prestabilito ma un fottutissimo caos che si autorganizza sempre a colpi di meraviglia.  (qualche foto qui)

P.S. I miei Japantrip (geta amore e fantasia) sono piaciuti davvero tantoatutti anche al Crack e su Craftershock li hanno appena recensiti YO!
