I was born and it’s sure. The place was in the south of Sicily in 1968. After graduating from the DAMS, the Art, Music and Theater Academy in Bologna (specializing in art History and Visual communication ), I get my alias zamzam and started working with different mediums:
video, music, computer, clay, painting, photography. In the early nineties I started a 3 years teaching experimental program to teach preschool children (3, 4 years old) the way to “read” television and learn
In this period I made two video animations for a
Television Pilot in cooperation with Kid Screen, the international organization about TV effects on children. The object of my study was the power of “signs” as basic tool for a minimal communication.
In the same time I shooted with a Lubitel and an old Zenith a series of 20 pictures about “Ghosts”. All the 20 “ghost” pictures were b/w and printed in a traditional photography dark room. Six years later I get a cheap digital camera and it helped me with the new cycle “DisHuman”. Every pictures was related to a short tale. Focus was a new point of view about the “invisible”
side of human beings. The work was composed by 40 monoprints. The “matrix” realized in computer graphics has been printed and transformed again with paint and acid and so printed on canvas.
All the 20×30 cm works was related to short tales about the “DisHuman” Era.
I spent my latest 7 years on environmental and human issues. I don’t know where I’m going to.. but I love the way.
