Giuseppe Ripa: Moondance

Text by Renato Miracco, Giuseppe Ripa.

Giuseppe Ripa's Moondance is a kind of photographic sci-fi fantasy that yo-yos between earth and sky, from aerial views to futuristic urban architectures in cities such as New York, London and Milan. Ripa's portrayal of these environments implicitly opposes the more regimented aspects of contemporary society.
Giuseppe Ripa: Moondance

FROM THE BOOK
"The increasing overlap between the real and the imaginary--which is the focus of my research-- has required an arrangement of the work that aims to suggest a metamorphosis of reality and favor an exercise of free imagination open to a variety of assumptions and alternatives. I have then pushed myself to the limit, creating a situation of deconstruction of reality even through the use of blurred images, which I have shot freehand. In this way, I have intended to recall the destabilization of traditional cognitive processes and, generally speaking, the situation of fragmentation and transience typical of our society and culture.
"In the open narrative structure, I have recreated a 'space fantasy' that sometimes freely refers to the science-fiction genre, offering a continuous alternation of the images of Heaven and Earth to create a yo-yo sight and thought in an atmosphere of disruptive alienation.
"I have portrayed humans as androids. A task that is not impossible in our overcrowded metropolises (New York, London, and Milan are among the cities that I have preferred), where people are familiar strangers due to the more and more inhuman rhythm of life and the increasing decline of affection."

Giuseppe Ripa, excerpted from "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe." in Moondance .
