la mia figura
si illumina di poesia
è un altro tipo di sorriso

una formula elementare
di essere nell’uno
universale

my figure is lit by
poetry from within it’s
a different kind

of smile an elementary
formula to be
in the universal one

FOCAL POINT by Anna Mosca (EN vrs.)

Standard

Here it is!!!
For you, the English version of a short video of the conference held on May 21st 2016 in Italy on the “Focal Point” of my artistic walk. I was asked to explain to the public – in just 15 minutes – where, why and how Poetry and Photography merge in my personal search.

The conference, held in a beautiful location, the restored, historical, former King’s Waiting Room in the train station of Monza, was part of the Tenth Poetry Summit organized by Poesia Presente. I had a selection of my own photographic work showing in the background that you can view in this slide presentation.

Video starts with whispering so careful not to raise the volume too loud!
Will love to read your feed-backs and fell free to share the link. Enjoy it…

UN PETALO – A PETAL – video poetry

Standard

The following minimalist video was shown for the second appointment organized by Archivio Dedalus in Milan, Italy, on Saturday July 11th 2015, together with the documentary on Franco Loi realized by Pezzella and a few others productions by independent filmakers.

The project aims to contribute to Expocittà Milano with cultural additions such as Feed Your Soul.
May I remember that the focus of Expo 2015 is Feed the Planet. Videos had to be part of one of two categories: Herbarium or Bestiary. My evocative video belongs to Herbarium this time, taking you from a petal to an internal journey. At the previous appointment I presented a video poem on My Black Cat that you may have seen or can be seen here on my blog.

On youtube you’ll find an explanation of this suggestive short video in English and here is a link to the original poem as it was previously posted here on WordPress.

Video Poetry – Video Poesia ISA Monza

Standard

*

A year ago I taught some students of the Art Institute of Monza in Italy a course, side to side with Professor Telloli, during which they had to interpret a poetic text of mine and create a video. One of the students even wanted to put music to it!

Sadly, due to Italian school reforms the Art Institute will no longer exist and the school will have a different schedule that leaves less room to creativity.

To celebrate the Art Institute the way it was (that is the same school were I started my walk as a young artist), the teachers and the work students did, I wish to post here three of their video. One is in English and two in Italian. I encourage you to watch them all and perceive the feelings hidden behind the words of a different language.

Enjoy them!

Un anno fa insegnai un corso all’Istituto d’Arte di Monza al fianco del professor Telloli, docente di ruolo. Gli studenti dovevano interpretare un mio testo poetico e creare un video ricavato da foto loro. Uno di loro volle anche musicare una poesia!

Tristemente per via della riforma della scuola italiana questo è l’ultimo anno per l’ISA di Monza e come liceo avrà meno ore di creazione artistica.

Per celebrare l’Istituto d’Arte com’era (è la scuola dove io stessa ho cominciato il mio percorso d’artista), gli insegnanti e il lavoro fatto dagli studenti, pubblico qui tre dei loro video. Uno in inglese e due in italiano. Vi invito a visionarli tutti e tre indipendentemente dal linguaggio utilizzato.

Buona visione e buon ascolto!

Video Poetry – Video poesia

Standard

Welcome back! Here are a few links to a new project of video poetry.

I had this project in mind for a long time: I was quite frustrated by the lack of time to bring it to completion, then, as it usually happens, things started to come together.

Therefore I accepted gratefully when a handful of my students from my photography course quite casually asked me if they could use their pictures to do a slide show of my poetry. Next I asked to a kind and creative friend if he could help with the music and the recording.

Shortly before this project started, a poet from Texas now living in Italy, was organizing an international poetry contest. She selected some of my poetry and asked me for audio tracks of the same to publish with the written version.

In the meantime an italian writer had asked me for some poems to be included in a book he was writing on Slam Poetry in Italy. He needed, beside the texts, to have some video where I was reading my poetry, with the voice and and rhythm I use during readings and slams.

Well, suddenly these video poems had to be made.

These are the results of a work done, for once, not all by myself but in a team, which is where my life is taking me. Results of which I’m very happy.

Have a look and subscribe to the channel on YouTube. Some are in English some in Italian. Thank you.



Bentrovati! Qui aggiungo una manciata di link a un nuovo progetto di video poesia.

Il progetto mi girava in testa da anni, con non poca frustrazione per la solita mancanza di tempo per realizzarlo poi, come succede, le cose hanno cominciato ad avvenire.

Così ho accettato con gratitudine l’offerta, ventilata quasi casualmente, di alcuni miei studenti del corso di fotografia in accademia, di creare degli slide show con le loro foto, le mie poesie, la mia voce. Poi ho coinvolto un amico, gentile e creativo, per le basi musicali e le registrazioni audio.

Succedeva che, nel frattempo, pochissimo tempo prima della realizzazione effettiva di questo progetto, una poeta texana, immigrata in Italia, organizza un concorso di poesia internazionale. Seleziona alcune mie poesie ma mi chiede alcune tracce audio delle stesse da pubblicare insieme alla versione scritta.

Anche uno scrittore e poeta italiano che mi aveva richiesto alcune poesie, per un’antologia che avrebbe scritto sullo Slam Poetry in Italia, mi chiede di dargli oltre ai testi dei video dove io leggevo le mie poesie, con il tono di voce che mi caratterizzava durante i reading e gli slam.

Insomma, di colpo la cosa andava realizzata e questi sono i primi risultati di un lavoro, per una volta non compiuto in solitario ma in team, che è dove la mia vita mi sta portando. Risultati dei quali io sono molto felice. Dateci un’occhiata cliccando sui link sopra o con il copia incolla.
