“TRAVEL NOTEBOOKS” (2011/20..)

Video Art Project by Silvia De Gennaro

 

Travel Notebooks is an ongoing project on journeys to cities.

So far it consists of a series of animated videos and prints of eleven cities: Perugia, Amsterdam, Beijing, Taranto, Prague, Barcelona, Venice, Kardzhali, Bilbao, Marseilles and Dubai

Many different aspect of the cities are shown, in a continuous flow that also represents traveller's emotional and cognitive experiences.

 

A large digital collage is made for the printed version of the project, with details from photos collected during the journey. The collage is later reduced to a resolution suitable for a video and is then produced in an animated version.

 

So it is not the city itself that is represented but the image of the city that the traveller remembers. These details are like notes written in a notebook that stay in the traveller's memory.

The animation attempts to bring together not only the impressions and suggestions experienced, but also the traveller's different points of view. The traveller first concentrates on one detail and then on another one, as though with a sort of selective focus that takes place at the same times, where the prospective is not provided by scientific parameters but by the emotions experienced observing and discovering the cities.

Travel Notebooks è un progetto in progress sul tema del viaggio in ambiente urbano.

Ad oggi è composto dai video e dalle stampe di undici città: Perugia, Amsterdam, Pechino, Taranto, Praga, Barcellona, Venezia, Kardzhali, Bilbao, Marsiglia e Dubai.

 

Le opere mostrano le città nei loro molteplici aspetti e nel loro continuo movimento, rappresentando al tempo stesso il processo emotivo e cognitivo che avviene nel viaggiatore.

 

Con ritagli delle foto raccolte durante il viaggio viene realizzato -per la versione stampa del progetto- un collage digitale di grandi dimensioni; in un secondo momento il collage viene ridotto alla risoluzione adatta alla produzione di un video e viene animato.

Quindi non viene rappresentata la città oggettiva ma l'immagine della città rimasta impressa nella memoria: i ritagli delle foto sono appunti sul taccuino di un viaggiatore, frammenti che al ritorno sopravvivono nel ricordo.

La successiva animazione del lavoro tenta di ricomporre non solo le impressioni e le suggestioni vissute, ma anche i diversi punti di vista del viaggiatore, che si concentrano ora su un particolare ora su un altro, come in una sorta di messa a fuoco selettiva che avviene simultaneamente, dove la prospettiva non è data da canoni scientifici, ma dalle emozioni provate nell’osservare e scoprire.
