Theatrical Perspective, Pt. 1

As in a perfect theatrical machine, the artist [Vitali] brings us back to the unity of the crowd of performers within a satirical scene and its bucolic landscape, thanks to the vanishing point which brings the eye to where land meets the sea.

Escaping

The solitude and total freedom of a wild land created the ideal location for both melancholy and exaltation.

Playing

Winnicott’s account of play is useful because it offers a description of how and why some artworks are effective on some and not others, how the experience of game-play is meaningful and potentially liberating, and why play is a recurring component of social relations and adult life.

Complexity vs. Interest

There are fewer people because I realized: if I increase the complexity, it doesn’t necessarily make it more interesting.

Domenica d’agosto | A Sunday in August

[His work] reminds me of "Domenica d’agosto” (A Sunday in August) by Luciano Emmer, that incredible 1950 film based on a story by Sergio Amidei and a screenplay by Franco Brusati, where, in the hot days of a beach in Ostia, six different stories intersect.

Horror Vacui

Since before the Renaissance paintings were full: on the bottom you would find the patrons who had commissioned the work, normally on the right side, then the knights, saints, Madonnas, kids, and angels. Why shouldn’t we be able to take photographs with the same configuration?

Something Animal

Despite the large number of people in many of the scenes and regardless to the photographer’s visibility to them in their own field of view, only a handful of people ever seem to be looking at him (that is, at us).
