TimeToSleep – live Vj set
TimeToSleep is a project by video maker Lucio Di Cicco and photographer James Menzani, born in January 2008. They combine their visual imagery in a live interaction with sound, trying to create a dialogue between two or more streams of images. The new project, Homevideo, presented within Fabbrica Europa, aims to devise new forms of interaction between the historical narrative and the obsessive repetition of the loop, between the family video biography and the collective moment of the dance floor. An interaction found in an intermittent dialogue of a super 8 shot and a digital full hd shot, catalyzed through a restless and intense ironic live. Lucio Di Cicco and James Menzani find with this project a fragile esthetic, suspended between the chemical impression of the film and the synthetic work of the live. They discover a language that, telling itself, tells the change of the perception of the reality and of the forms of the narrative.
