  • About the work

Carbon pigment print on Hahnemuhle cotton paper mounted on aludibond, wood frame

The sistema di riferimento monodimensionale (one-dimensional coordinate system) which gives its name to the title of the project, is a theorem invented by Rene Descartes. 

We consider the reference system, the set of references used to locate the position of an object in space, consisting of a straight line, on which an object is bound to move. 

Depending on the number of references, we can talk about a: 

  • one-dimensional coordinate system (1D) 
  • two-dimensional coordinate systems (2D) 
  • three-dimensional coordinate systems (3D) 

The research for this project concerns not so much the analysis of the algebraic theorem, but attempts to reformulate the antithesis between science and paranormal phenomenon in which, through a clear digital action, defined as 'picture leak', the movement takes shape within the space of a Cartesian axis. Thereby a visual result is determined in which only a specific portion (along a straight line) of the picture disappears, while the rest of the space, in this case a photographic space, remains unchanged. 

About the Artist

1974 Naples, Italy

Lamberto Teotino deals with visual arts, his investigation develops mainly on the analysis and nature of the image, examining its perceptual mechanisms. The first experiments touched on painting, sculpture and traditional photography, but in advancing his professional career, Teotino worked to overcome the canons of mere visual documentation, looking for new possibilities, unexplored and unexpected, arriving at the perceptive alteration of the image and to video art. Through careful, thoughtful, methodical study, not without a dose of randomness and magic, the artist achieves in his works a balance between reality, made of suggestions, sounds, colors, smells, sensations, emotions, and illusions, the paradoxes, ambiguities, created by the philosophical, mathematical, scientific elements.

The use of photography, the technical conceptual interventions on archival images, the philosophical approaches of the image in the form of visual-installation communication represent the artist's modus operandi, which seeks the dissemination of meaning, paradox, the conditions of perceptual alteration and a new conceptual design, as a sort of metaphysical shift, a deviation. It is an archive work, the one carried out by Lamberto Teotino, in search of photographs, works of art, historical testimonies, but it is also a work of continuous observation of the world around us, of references drawn from real life, from passions, from music, from cinema.
