Temporary Cities


Text and Time 60, oil on canvas, 70x100 cm, 2008, artwork of archetypal expressionism, belonging to the Archetypal New York Project.

The possible emergence of the temporary cities in the future will be based on the aesthetics of speed&nomadism, flexibility&reconfigurability.

The trans-architecture of such amazing cities is an intimate fusion of space with light, sound, colours and virtual reality, focused on conceptualism, minimalism, happening, irony&urban phantasy. Such a ”Citta Intermedia” becomes a net where people are free to express their temporary trans-culture, creativity&identity, a place where even time is a creativity matrix. But the loss of the center, horizon, natural, normal, even human, will contribute to a diminution of the role of the ego&history.

A culture dominated by temporary cities will be a post-historical and post-literary culture.

PS

The Italian visual artist and architect, Luca Curci, founder of It’s Liquid magazine, asked me to write this concept in 2006, for the group shows of ArtExpo International Group at Klaipeda Cultural Communication Center, Lithuania and National Center for Contemporary Arts, Moscow, Russia.
