"The 3 photos were taken during the "European Cultural Performance Ecological Archaeology" at Rocca Paolina in Perugia (Italy), May 2011.
These games of "aliens" light are - Hydrophones - electro-acoustic instruments to detect sounds in a liquid, mechanisms that produced music with water.
I thought it was extraordinary the result of something of technology (modern) and something natural and ancient (the water).
A message of Science and Nature together in an friendly ecological way."

More images from my project "City Walls" that I submitted last year, #29, on the blog.

The three images are

Cash (Dallas), 2011;
Ox (Atlanta), 2010; and
Police (Birmingham) 2010.

They are all straight photographs and each contain some aspect of a sign that has been tagged, distressed, etc.

Icons of our times:
These are iconography that I have created by re-imagining existing street signs common in many countries that can apply to contemporary life in most major cities around the world.

Suggestions of rescue only serve as a reminder. In deconstructing the realities, we reveal a changing configuration. Daily existence manifests resultant of the fate of man, in filtering this, we gain a better understanding as the role of repetition is paramount. Has the apocalypse already happened? While the objects are randomly associated with each other, discarded and nontraditional materials give new contextualization and serve as components in a larger work. In exchanging ideas, traditional notions of painting and support, overall use is to serve as metaphors in an effort to reclaim and salvage forgone personal hopes , aspirations and relationships, in cataloging and decoding the past. In the aspect of survival, we are left searching through the desecrated and abandoned desolated urban landscape, once filled with the vigor of human civilization. Scavengers reduced to survivalism, are overcome by the catastrophe. What is left is challenge, overwhelming experience that cuts as a threat to man’s own hand in the existence of life for mankind. Once thriving and considered as the highest functioning and dominant form of life, it is the modern evolution- resultant hominid that is left to histrionics from the monstrosity of nature. The only force left to stabilize and preserve society is that played by the hero. It is only through heroism that humanity may be saved and preserved in structure and functionality. Reform is necessity to rise from the ashes of desecration and through selflessness it is the hero that manifests.

The image attached is a photograph of a drawing which is part of "The Ancestry Archive" - series of drawings, made of carbon paper marks on paper (2011, Joana Roberto).

The drawing is based on an aviator badge, an insignia that is used in most of the world’s militaries to designate those who have received training and qualification in military aviation. The symbol is also known as Pilot’s Badge, or Pilot Wings and was first conceived to recognize trained military aviators and to provide differentiation between military pilots and the “foot soldiers” of the regular ground forces.
