• My contribution to the
project Art for Venice is part of a five-year work in progress: the building of an excessive, unreal, out-of-time town called Delirious City. In order to recreate each one of their buildings I have borrowed architectural scraps taken during my trips to Paris, Moscow, Naples, New York City, Shanghai, Barcelona and Vienna. The result, often erroneously identified with a collage made out of several images, always originates in a single image that I still take with the same analogue camera I have always used. After being reworked in an endless digital mirror game, a kaleidoscopic representation of this delirious city is born. I reinterpret these chunks of reality, bestowing on them a different function to the one envisaged by the original architect for the real building. Excess, ambiguity and timelessness are crucial in my corpus. Antonio Girbes

www.soheinishino.com - The Diorama Map•
The Diorama Map, which is almost a birds eye view of the city, is not a precise google map, but presents the key elements of the city in a form closer to my own memory and observation. Therefore, every single element amongst the enormous mound of pieces reflects my own act of photographic creation itself.• Diorama Map series is ongoing and will be developed in cities all over the world in the future.
Jean-François Rauzier• he created the
“Hyperphoto”, a concept which enables him to deal with the impossible: to combine both infinitely big and infinitely small things in one same image, out of time.• To simulate the illusion of reality, Jean-François Rauzier first had to cope with all the inherent limits inherent of the photographic and technological equipment.• He found his way by juxtaposing, duplicating, twisting images with Photoshop, making it possible for him to reproduce human vision more accurately.
