I’m clearly an alien. I’m italian, 49, and this is my first time in the US. I’m in beautiful Chicago since january 5th as a visiting artist at SAIC, where I have a Topics Class on pornography, and especially the type of porn I call Realcore. What I do as an artist is sound, music and performance. I believe that art should be urgent and dangerous, and I call my pieces social sculptures after a definition by one of my favorite artists, Joseph Beuys. I have an italian blog, Fosforo, but being in an english speaking country, I feel I should have a place to talk about things I feel are relevant, interesting, incongrous or just plainly funny in a language people would understand outside Italy. That place is here: welcome to con/temporary alien, my english blog.
