Francesca Recchia, London – I have always been quite fascinated by electricity and telephone lines and by the way in which they shape urban landscape. Throughout the years, in my travels they have been one of the main subjects of my photos. I found them disquieting and intriguing at the same time. Different areas of the world deal with them in diverse ways. They seem somehow an embodiment of both social structure and the role that is attributed to interpersonal communication in that particular place. Beyond technology, they give a particular taste to the city; they are aerial labyrinths that invite you to get lost and discover unexpected corners and panoramas. Today after a conversation with Martijn about the importance of words and the organic quality of blogs as means of expression, I though these wires would be a nice metaphor for me to dive into the discussion and try to follow the path towards the mysterious world of internet communication.
