This podcast is far from perfect. It’s raw. And, in its first episode, we are talking about wildlife, surveillance and the modern way of hunting. The American artist Gabriel Edward Adams was for few days my guest and I’d like to start with presenting his work “Hunter, I’ve taken your memory”, featured in Biel – Bienne in Switzerland July 6, 2018, at Juraplatz after dark.
“Hunter, I’ve taken your memory” presents a selection of motion sensor captured infrared night view images from the original contents of an unknown bowhunter’s portable wildlife camera. The collection was clandestinely downloaded after an unexpected encounter while walking in the forest. This presentation delivers a series of black and white images of forest life by night. The mix of deer, raccoon, rabbit, bobcat, fox, and coyote images evoke the presence of omens and animal mythologies, while also existing as practical studies for hunting.The images progress in sequence through the winter months, accompanied by accurate time signatures and phases of the moon.
Margherita d’Ayala Valva will moderate the talk/discussion entitled Il Cibo da Prodotto di Consumo a Strumento Creativo ( food : from consumer products to instrument of creativity) with Social Soups – Rachela Abbate and Maria Rebecca Ballestra – and the Social Soups guest artist/designer Eduardo Malagigi.
Save the date June 9th, 6.00 – 8.00 pm, Fortezza Vecchia in Livorno
