federico babina illustrates the dreamlike circus globe
with his most up-to-date sequence ‘ARCHICIRCUS’, federico babina unveils 17 illustrations that depict 17 distinct compact ephemeral and nomadic, unstable and acrobatic architectures. for him, every one particular represents the fluid and doing encounter of contemporary layout. in this challenge, the italian illustrator sees the architecture as a circus clearly show, in a position to remodel its illustration into a poetic enjoy and improve the people who observe it into an viewers.
‘the lights dim… the show commences. occasionally I have identified myself searching at attractive architecture like a child looking at a circus act with exhilaration: holding my breath, my nose in the air, my eyes large and my mouth open, viewing the magic of the present. at times architecture becomes an art that arouses speculate by means of words and phrases, sounds, gestures, and sorts that have a miraculous visual appearance and the ability to amaze and excite,’ mentioned federico.all photos by federico babina
what if architecture was a circus show
babina‘s ‘ARCHICIRCUS’ came from the plan that the architecture is staged as if it had been a circus demonstrate. architecture dresses up, puts on make-up, and is transformed to interpret itself in a demonstrate where volumes and sorts create dramaturgy and notify tales.
the display commences with suspended volumes that jump and dance, supplying form to suggestive figures. the artist invites the viewers to get immersed into a dreamlike environment — that one of the circus. ‘strong sorts that maintain the body weight in an acrobatic gesture suspended on the vertigo of the abyss and other graceful kinds flying and dancing like feathers blown by the wind. architectural tightrope walkers with fleeting sensations among dream and fantasy, occasionally transparent and ethereal, other moments powerful and extroverted, even intrusive and noisy. the kinds of the ephemeral are continuous presences that, in quite a few means, form the working experience of time and place.’
through his illustrations, the artist delivers us into a environment the place architecture does not have to conform to logic. a dream environment where by everything is doable, without having constraints.‘the anti-conformism inherent in the ephemeral and nomadic character of circus life, give it a fleeting aura changing it into a image of liberty equipped to make achievable the impossible. I like it when architecture is in a position to generate that illusion, exactly where the ideas of logic and physics show up suspended, affirming as an alternative, the laws of goals.’
