We Are Who We Are, Luca Guadagnino first TV series

Giulia Pacciardi · 4 months ago · Art

The first series by award-winning screenwriter, director and producer Luca Guadagnino will be released in October on Sky and in streaming on NOW TV. It consists of 8 episodes that tell the story of two young people living their adolescence in an American military base in Italy..

We Are Who We Are is a story that deals with themes such as friendship, first loves, contrasting feelings typical of the age of the two protagonists, and of all teenagers in this world.

HBO, who didn’t want to leak too much information, commented on the series when the teaser was released: 

We Are Who We Are is the story of two American children living on an American military base in Italy. The series explores friendship, first love, identity and plunges the audience into the messy sense of euphoria and anguish of being a teenager – a story that could happen anywhere in the world, but in this case, it happens in this small slice of America in Italy.

The cast of the series, along with the two protagonists played by Jack Dylan Grazer and Jordan Kristine Seamón, also includes actors of the calibre of Chloë Sevigny, Kid Cudi, Alice Braga, Francesca Scorsese, Corey Knight, Beatrice Barichella, Ben Taylor and Sebastiano Pigazzi.

While we are waiting to learn more about this first experiment carried out by the director of films such as “I am Love”, “A Bigger Splash”, “Suspiria” and “Call me by your name”, take a look at the teaser you can find here.

Peter Phobia illustrates his love of skateboarding

Peter Phobia illustrates his love of skateboarding

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

The speed, the noise of the wheels on the asphalt, the fluid movements of the body, the stunts that leave you breathless. Skateboarding is a sport of technique, boldness and freedom. Peter Phobia spent his adolescence on a skateboard and although years have passed and he has become a well-known illustrator, the bond that united him with this passion has never been broken, on the contrary, it has become more and more intense. 

Today, Peter Phobia lives in New York and spends his time creating, dividing his time between personal projects and commissioned work. Over the years, Peter has collaborated with several clients and newspapers including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Samsung, Absolute, and eBay. 

Our attention, however, was captured by one of his latest personal projects, a series of illustrations entitled Balance and Kickflips and dedicated entirely to skateboarding. 

When we say entirely dedicated to skateboarding, we mean that Peter Phobia doesn’t just represent boys and girls on their boards, but gives back to the viewer the adrenaline and the atmosphere that one breathes while practicing this sport. The bright and full colors tell us of cities lived in a different way, always on the move, and of friendships and relationships that are born thanks to this passion.

The series depicts a romantic idea of a community based on shared passion.

Below are some of Peter’s illustrations, to find out more visit his website and his Instagram profile.

A Forest Where Gods Live, the art of teamLab returns to Japan

A Forest Where Gods Live, the art of teamLab returns to Japan

Giulia Pacciardi · 4 months ago · Art

Finally, after the official reopening, the teamLab collective has announced that its annual Outdoor Exhibition will be held again this year.
From this summer until next October, the beautiful Mifuneyama Rakuen forest in Kyushu, Japan, will once again be invaded by 22 digital works that aim to challenge our understanding of time, space, and the relationship between man and nature.

Inside the 500,000 square meter park, also famous for housing Okuso, the 3,000-year-old sacred tree of the Takeo Sanctuary, it is not clear where the uncultivated wonder of the forest ends and where the garden on which man has placed his hands begins, creating a continuum between nature and human being in which the viewer gets lost and immersed.

Inside the exhibition A Forest Where Gods Live it will be possible to see, among others, a projection of Koi carp and small boats on the surface of the Mifuneyama Rakuen pond, the reproduction of a waterfall on the big sacred rock of the sanctuary of Inari Daimyojin and also a big work dedicated to Enso on a rock.

This is the sixth consecutive year in which TeamLab works in the forest and gardens of Mifuneyama Rakuen to transform nature into a true work of art without ever damaging it.

To learn more about the whole event and the collective visit the website here.

Breaking stereotypes, one art at a time.
This can be read in the bio of the Instagram profile of Naushin, a young designer who, when not working for her brand Baari, dedicates her free time to the creation of embroideries that, besides being beautiful, are the vehicle of strong and decisive messages related to increasingly topical themes. 

With just the use of needle and thread, Naushin tells us stories that deal with topics such as prejudice, skin color, acceptance of one’s own body, the vision of women in society, the canons of beauty, and much more. 

Just a little is enough, the silhouette of two bodies embracing each other, full of wounds from which, however, flowers are born, says more than a thousand words. It is thanks to their simplicity, but also to the reality they represent, that Naushin’s works go straight to the heart and become the symbol of battles that we should never stop fighting.

“Bending arc”, Janet Echelman’s floating installation

“Bending arc”, Janet Echelman’s floating installation

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 months ago · Art

Janet Echelman’s latest enchanting installation called “Bending arc” is located on the waterfront in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The work, which extends for 130 meters and about 30 meters high, seems to gently wrap the beach in an embrace full of colors.

The installation floats gently over the park, allowing the wind to generate a continuously moving choreography. The colours of “Bending arc” are constantly changing, during the day the sculpture casts shadows on the people below, but at night it turns into a luminous beacon of magenta and purple light.

Janet Echelman’s installation actually has a very deep meaning, the waterfront in St. Petersburg is a very important historical place. Local citizens began to peacefully challenge racial barriers in 1957, leading to the US Supreme Court ruling which upheld the right of all citizens to enjoy the use of the municipal beach and swimming pool without discrimination.

The title of the work “Bending arc” by the American artist metaphorically takes up the famous quote: “the arc of the moral universe is long, but bends towards justice“.
