Postal Card #0084 & #0085
Unplanned, quick and reckless work have a lot of meaning to me. Contrasting the planning and elaborated strategies that sometimes take over projects and ideas, I find priceless value in these particular processes and results. The photo used as the heart of the postal card was taken by pointing the ground while walking through the streets of Milan, Italy. Even if understandable, let’s clarify while pairing the image with these lines. At the following picture, there is a traffic signal over the concrete, plus the silhouette of an old, small blue car. Got it?
Re-imagined a symmetrical point of view as a base for the results, while adding some dirty, unreadable and unpredictable elements as a twisted new path. The concept of precaution is permanently related while we talk about protection. Here is where shows up the inspiration of the black tourmeline as a symbol of it’s meaning, read as a shield for negative energies and undesired forces. In a mix between quick and dirty photography with digital illustration, I didn’t even know I was building one of many postal cards up to come. A topic that has been always interesting to me is how the order reacts against the disorder, while this one is trying to over-protect inherently by default. Nowadays reading How Disruption Brought Order, seems correct to affirm that How Order Brought Disorder, So Disruption could also be written.
