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 the solo tour around Italy on my Vespa, 60 photos shot walking among the most beautiful places of Turin on august 4, 2006.
Here are the photos, each one with a caption, georeferenced on Google Maps and you can rate it or leave a comment!
In the meantime the exhibition of the 10 Vespas at the Iper of Grandate is doing pretty well, people stop reading the descriptions out of curiosity.
How true is this sentence!
Certainly it’s inside Guido’s mind, one of the people who’s accompanying me in the making of the project awarded at the StartCup 2006 (they just published the official pics), if he decided to take care of a photography course together with Stefania Pifferi at Pifferi’photo studio in Como.
A course of five lessons mainly about portrait about which you can download the detailed program.
A post about photography gives me the idea to show you another selection of pics I took during the Vespatour.
The fist one shows the front and the bell tower of Torino’s cathedral under a sky which snatched a “what a nice sky!” from a friend photographer, ex-colleague when I was working for Trecision in Rapallo. A comment with double importance since comes from a critic guy like him.
Talking again about Torino, since I’ll attend the 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 various languages.
If “taking pictures means giving importance” for you too, as Susan Sontag says, probably Guido’s photography course will of interest to you.
It’ll start tomorrow evening, so hurry up if you’re interested. Information to contact him is in the program course’s PDF.
