Matteo Damiani is a visual artist and filmmaker born in Milan, Italy in 1987; he works with different media, photos, still frames from movies and Internet archive images and videos.
After the act of selection from the Internet flux of images and informations, the photo get material on canvas, where it’s mixed up with colors and heavy paper. The final result is a sort of latent image, fixed on canvas and covered by acrylic painting and papers.
The photography project PERCEPTION:
Pictures in this project are the result of long exposure photography during the projection of different movies. The second as a time unit in cinema is composed
by 24 frames, in this time this process create a new image, in wich different scenes enter in
the others, the characters interact in a space and time that is in a limbo between cinema and photography.
There is no digital postproduction, no photoshop and overlay, the images are made with long
exposure time of the camera during the projection of the movie.
