i-muse was among the 30 finalists of the Faber contest, a national competition for creative projects organized by the town of Turin with the support of Regione Piemonte.
Among the three project categories, audiovisual, animations and web, i-muse was in the third one, since it included interactive graphical environments both online and offline.
The prize for the web category went, with good advice in my opinion, to the myminutes.org site.
Apart from the result, attending the contest has been a positive experience, since I spent three days among meetings and workshops at the Virtual Reality and Multi Media Park of Turin.
Other than some contacts with companies that examined the works and showed an interest for the videoguide, it was really interesting meeting and discussing with other young creative finalists, a lot of them in the thirties.
In particular I hope I’ll be able to collaborate with some professionals already working in the Turin area in the arts sector.
The works of the finalists were very good, I hope they will be soon available on the contest site.
My best greetings and good luck to all the people I met in Turin!
I uploaded the second gallery of my solo journey around Italy on a Vespa, 60 photos taken walking among the most beautiful places of Turin on august 4, 2006.
Here are the photos, each one with a caption, geo-referenced on Google Maps and you can even rate it or leave a comment!
In the meantime the exhibition of the 10 Vespas at the Iper of Grandate is doing well, people stop reading the descriptions out of curiosity.
The first photo gallery related to the Vespatour, 56 photos taken in Milan and in Turin, is online, while the rest will be available the next days.
I’d like to invite you to view the photos, each one has something to tell.
Also they are geo-referenced, which means you can see where I took them thanks to Google Maps, simply by clicking on the Map This! button.
How true that sentence is!
Does “taking pictures is giving importance” for you too, as Susan Sontag said?
A post about photography gives me the idea to show you another selection of pics I took during the Vespatour.
The first one shows the front and the bell tower of Turin’s cathedral under a sky that snatched a “what a nice sky!” from a friend and ex-colleague when I was working for Trecision in Rapallo. A comment with double importance since it comes from an artist like him.
Talking again about Turin, since I’ll attend to Telemobility Forum 2006 on wednesday, the second one shows the famous Piercing, a curious example of urban art made in 1996 on a building in Piazza Corpus Domini.
In the third one you can see the Ancient Clock Shed located in Piazza della Repubblica with the inscription Loving differences in different languages.
