Diorama issue #6. Zoe de Luca (Ed.)

Posted in art, distribution, magazines on February 17th, 2014


Issue #6: Luce

By tuning the direction and intensity of the light, a variety of stage effects is produced: the Diorama, compartment within which, through a window, the viewer can discover and observe from inexhaustible perspectives. Diorama Magazine wants to recreate the nineteenth-century mechanism in a printed editorial product, outcome of a constant research, marked in monothematic seasons. It collects entries in a multifaceted amateur dictionary, in order to share its study and suggest a further development. Independent and self-published, each issue deals with the chosen theme oscillating between the myth and the unusual; an eye dedicated in recording the potential of the research.

Accordando la direzione e l’intensità della luce viene prodotta una molteplicità di effetti scenici: il Diorama, vano all’interno del quale, attraverso uno spiraglio, lo spettatore può scoprire ed osservare da inesauribili prospettive. Diorama Magazine vuole ricreare il meccanismo ottocentesco in un prodotto editoriale stampato, frutto di una ricerca costante, scandita in stagioni tematiche. Raccoglie voci in un poliedrico dizionario amatoriale, al fine di condividere il suo studio e di suggerirne un ulteriore sviluppo. Indipendente ed autoprodotto, ogni numero affronta l’oggetto scelto oscillando tra il mito e l’inedito; un occhio intento a registrare le potenzialità dell’indagine.
