Il titolo del lavoro prende il suo nome da un sistema di ripetizione dilazionata utilizzato in ambiti didattici per assistere nella memorizzazione di informazioni.
La ricerca si svolge tra San Costantino Albanese, noto paese arbëreshë della Basilicata, e Matera, esplorando temi di migrazione, linguaggio e tecnologia. Nel contesto del lavoro, la migrazione è intesa come il movimento di persone, ma anche come variazione linguistica, o lo spostamento di un linguaggio da un luogo ad un altro. Qui si incrociano idee di nazione, identità e tradizione con una riflessione sul linguaggio come tecnologia e sul ruolo della tecnologia nei mutamenti linguistici imposti dall’alto, e quelli che invece filtrano dal basso.
L’opera della Bruno comunica su vari livelli con la mostra attuale di I-DEA a cura di Pelin Tan e Liam Gillick, ampliando i temi di modernizzazione durante secondo dopo-guerra esplorati dalla curatrice e l’artista.

“What do we really know about water?
Its background noise is a constant companion of our daily lives. We end up so accustomed to it, that it becomes invisible.
Yet, some people work with water, with how we drink, what we drink, with the way water runs in our cities. Who are they? And what economics are concealed behind water?”
Confotografia is at SI FEST.
Four years after the earthquake that, on the 6th of April 2009, destroyed L’Aquila and its surroundings,
CONFOTOGRAFIA proposed to test a new method of photographic survey based on the exchange of experiences and knowledge between photographers and inhabitants. More than fifty photographers, between 20th and 26th September 2013, were hosted in a Artist-In-Residence workshop in L’Aquila.
This involved a first shared survey and a seminary with various experts. Besides, every photographer was supported by local people acting as a “guide”, willing to share their knowledge and their way of living with the photographer. CONFOTOGRAFIA was created as a need for stimulating a debate among photographers eager to start a collective process to observe the landscape, which could be useful to the people of the city to see – and rethink – L’Aquila in a new way.

Art residence with photographic project “Normale”.
Confotografia proposes an experimental method of investigation based on the exchange of knowledge between photographers and citizens. The goal is to activate a process of observation of the territory – a strong method – which would assist the city by providing the elements to look at it with different eyes. About 50 photographers of different ages and with different narrative approaches have worked for six days in close contact with each other and with citizens, associations, with the committees, with the students. They talked about photography and territory, photographed together what L’Aquila has become, to understand how we can represent what has happened.
