Montura

 

Voyage au Centre du Web.

Searching a new way. Always. Everywhere. Including here on the Web.
All it takes to explore this electronic landscape is a search engine; no need for a GPS device to find your way. All you need is a good navigation menu.
No wide open spaces, no thin air around you here: but there’s one fundamental aspect a high-mountain landscape and the Web have in common: a sense of freedom. The opportunity to explore, to learn, to discover, to improve: new routes can be opened up, new scenery spreads out before your eyes. The choice is (almost) entirely yours: it’s the destination that’s the driving force.
This new Montura website is a pathway.
A fresh, uncharted landscape, eager to be filled with news, dialogue, culture, experiences, and above all ideas; ready to observe the familiar from a whole new angle, keen to open up new perspectives. Even in our everyday lives, supported by our experience, and perhaps also our imagination. Shuffling the cards in the deck in search of a new hand, a different interpretation. Charting new territory, even without leaving home. No mean task? Sure. Beyond us? An uphill struggle, no doubt. But that’s just how we like it.

EPISODE 13 | AMAZONIA. WHERE THE LEGEND BEGINS

The source of Amazon river

02/29/2016 - A woman stares at me with wide eyes. She is clearly surprised by my awakening, so surprised that I remember she turned very sharp bending her head and shoulders as if was protecting a secret or showing a simple embarrassment. Wonderful, and unexpected, the landscape knocks on the window several times, but the woman is still there, fixed, rather motionless, ...she will not open to anyone. The road that I find looking down looks like a film unfolded with the marks of so many stor... more >>>

The sun begins to rise and the water, evaporating, deceive eyes and imagination. The river becomes a mirage. A mirage closely.

EPISODE 13 | AMAZONIA. WHERE THE LEGEND BEGINS

The source of Amazon river

02/29/2016 - A woman stares at me with wide eyes. She is clearly surprised by my awakening, so surprised that I remember she turned very sharp bending her head and shoulders as if was protecting a secret or showing a simple embarrassment. Wonderful, and unexpected, the landscape knocks on the window several times, but the woman is still there, fixed, rather motionless, ...she will not open to anyone. The road that I find looking down looks like a film unfolded with the marks of so many stor... more >>>

The sun begins to rise and the water, evaporating, deceive eyes and imagination. The river becomes a mirage. A mirage closely.

When nature is not just the environment that surrounds the man, but the raw material protagonist which through he interacts to express his own art with respect and mutual accommodation, words and prepositions of classical language are often not sufficient and they collide or meet each other to try to tell the languages of contemporary art.
