ARTIST OF THE MONTH
Michele Spanghero’s artistic research focuses on the relationship
between space and perception investigated through sonic arts and photography.
«always on the swaying scales of balance»
R. M. Rilke
"My research focuses on the acoustic art, declined in the form of music or sound art, and on visual art in the attempt to find a natural synthesis (non synaesthetic) between these two forms of expression.
The methodological approach characterizes my work through a continuous survey of the limits of the media: through the study of music and theater, I have indeed acquired an oblique approach that, usually starting from the sound, becomes instinctively tangential to visual art.
The creative act is developed by a reaction to the accumulation of information that surrounds us. From this (formless because always mediated) mass of data, starts for me the impulse to research and test a new semantic system of the pre-existing matter." Michele Spanghero
