Carmine Leta – Aforisma "Read the Pictures"

Posted on Apr 26, 2010 | 0 comments

Walking along the part of via del Pigneto that goes above the train tracks I ran into this interesting installation by artist Carmine Leta. There was a huge number of these photographs with the instructions written to “read the photos” in order to figure out a message. Doing some research this appears to be an installation that he does quite often, including at the Biennale in Bari, as well as at several other places in Rome. Each photograph selected is supposed to say something about the place where it is installed. Unfortunately I had to run to meet people so couldn’t study the photos as well as I’d have liked, but maybe I’ll walk over and see it again. In any case, I thought it was an interesting idea that I’d like to share.
