Nous travaillons sur le prochain livre de Michel Mazzoni, une co-édition Alt Editions & Editions Enigmatiques ! αστάρια | amorces est depuis hier disponible en prévente au prix de 25 € (signé) au lieu de 40 € à sa sortie… Les autres contreparties sont tout aussi intéressantes et nous vous invitons à découvrir et à soutenir le projet via Kickstarter
Nous vous remercions d’avances pour votre coup de pouce afin de réunir le budget nécessaire à sa finalisation !

αστάρια is a project on which Michel Mazzoni worked for years, step by step, and sometimes at the same time that the edition of its other books. This new opus enlightens the respective genesis of the precedents as much as it shows us the quintessence of the research for the author as artistic practice. It is a return as well as a new beginning with unexpected comings or goings that we would like to make graphically possible.

The project is on the right track but there is 3000-euros sum to be collected and we look for crowdfunders to finalize the financing and start the production.However, the more we’ll collect money, the more we’ll realize serenely this book, such as we imagine it. Funds collected by Kickstarter will be used for the finalization and the printing.

In return, we thus thought of proposing the signed copies pre-order and for a lesser price, but also to some postcards, deluxe edition with signed inkjet prints, archival pigment prints numbered, signed and framed. Each will find its count there. But everybody will participate in the publishing of an exceptional object and of quality.

alteditions - Nicolas Lamas - 01

Four years after Pediluve, we have the pleasure to publish our new book during Art Brussels: Nicolás LamasBlind Gestures project.

Blind gestures, the newest photographic project of Belgium based peruvian artist Nicolás Lamas, gathers 25 images scanned from dormant IPad screens. Each scan registers the marks, scratches, fingerprints and dust indefinitely accumulated on the screen surface.

In the process of gathering these images, Lamas establishes an unusual relationship between two electronic devices, using the scanner as photographic tool to « expose » the information that constantly changes and focuses on the « action space » of the tablets. The forms that are revealed may seem to be spontaneous, tactile gestures without any criteria; but they are indeed the registered actions of clear logic made to activate various functions of the IPad, when it is turned on.

Each image is unique, unrepeatable and corresponds to a specific moment in the interaction with digital information. Beside each image is the name of the IPad owner, putting emphasis on the close relationship between the tablet and each user, and the traces left by contact with a personal electronic device that translates builds and interconnects a world that is on both sides of the screen.

Very very screen glossy cover – 56 pages
First limited edition of 250 copies
100 copies signed and numbered by Nicolás Lamas.
ISBN: 978-2-9601438-0-5
Launch price: 22 euros.
