The written part, Un diario che non ti cambierà la vita, is a travel log and so much more. It conveys the field research, and acts as a sincere paper confidant. The diary guided me through the creation of the proper concrete object, the Book. Containing a sequence of tacit thoughts, recovered and re-discovered here and there, to be eventually translated into images on these solid pages.
Ultimately, the book is a collection of synthesized sensations.
The sentences, gestures and situations depicted exist in everyday italian life, and that’s why they often go unnoticed. They are indeed little useless things, but that’s where the meaning of this book really lies. It’s a humble mission: finding use in uselessness.
