LT24 is an experimental movie directed by Lucio Arese with Ametsub soundtrack, bringing an original technique that links images and music together through simulated timelapse.
The film depicts a 24 hours day (from 0 AM to 0 AM) compressed into 2 minutes 24 seconds (600x) where a group of construction workers builds a steel structure placed into a square arena.
The environment has an atmospheric system based on real solar azimuth and elevation data, corresponding to the geographic location of Turin at the 21st of June 2010 (summer solstice, longest day available in the year).
A 24 hour portion of reality is accelerated at whirling speed remaining organized into the guidelines of a musical structure; at the same time, a 2 minutes 24 seconds piece of music is "projected" into a 24 hour timespan, synchronizing and shaping every significative event - even the movement of every single worker is related to the music. This process creates a bidirectional relationship between music and motion picture, linking them into an imaginary dimension where the flow of visual and audio events is totally bounded together: this could be called "structured timelapse".
A wall mounted clock with a manifold that connects the two hands to create a 3D movement. At any given moment the manifold is located in a different position and different parts are seen. As the hour can be understood according to the traditional location of hands, a new reading of time is created.

'Nowhere Near Here' is a stop motion animation that uses a combination of light with stencils and long exposure photography to tell the story of a dog running around the city at night, doing whatever a dog does. The animation was first exhibited at the The Herbert, in Coventry, on the 7th October 2010.
With well over 300 hours in the making, more than 200 stencils involved and too many cold nights spent outside on my knees getting the shots, I am very happy (and relieved) to finally share this with you. Through the course of shooting 'Nowhere Near Here', I have dealt with curious drunks, a dog almost peeing on the camera (the irony is not lost on me, haha), the endlessly suspicious police and even someone nearly running off with a tripod.
This is street art, this is life and thank you for watching.
...for those of you that may be interested in prints, a selection of film stills from 'Nowhere Near Here' are currently available at pahnl.co.uk/store.php
