WHEN SOUND ENDS



This book is a translation of a series of actions that I conceived and performed as part of the project When Sound Ends.

Primarily intended to be experienced live, the actions and associated artifacts act as witnesses – often silently – to the impermanence and fragility of the body. The presence, absence and loss of sound become a metaphor for the human condition.

This book in turn functions as a sort of remembrance which allows these actions to live on in another medium, in another body.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN ART AND POLITICS?



Where Do You Draw the Line Between Art and Politics? consists of a series of interviews with individuals who have been active in various capacities at the intersection of art and politics.

Between historical documentation, political memory, dialogic reflections, and motivational support, the publication focuses on the experiences, commitments, and feelings that animate and inform aesthetic priorities in social spaces both within and outside of art institutions; a repository designed to inspire and encourage the politicization of aesthetics, as opposed to the aestheticization of politics.

The people I interviewed are: Pietro Perotti, a Fiat worker and self-appointed worker communicator; Lucia Farinati, a researcher, activist and independent curator; two anonymous members of a hacker collective working in the field of technology and urban space; Errico Canta Male, a singer-songwriter; and Mario “Schizzo” Frisetti and Luca Bruno, of the Torino Squatters.

TOUCH OF THE POPS



Audio release with text and graphics.
The work documents a series of directly experienced balloon pops.
Each pop was performed using a balloon and a location.
All locations were encountered separately by chance and chosen for their unique acoustic response.
The recordings presented in the book are intended to document the action of popping, its situatedness, immediacy, and physicality.
