My father enjoyed making a ‘fry up’ on Saturday mornings, usually consisting of fried eggs, bacon and fried bread. This was a regular occurrence. Here he is in action, circa 1988, in the kitchen of 28 Ferncroft Avenue.

10 day super 8mm production

Over the last couple of weeks, Diana and I made a Super 8mm film for her fashion label, Vusciché.
Here is an overview of what we did, plus some frames from the final edit.
We were ably assisted by Riccardo Pascucci – Bottega Analogica – and our daughter, Anyi.

We used two cameras – a Braun Nizo 801 Macro (a thing of beauty) and a Canon 1024 XLS.

I will post the final video here shortly.

Day 1, 2, 3 – storyboard, sopraluogo, scelta di colonna sonora

Day 4 – Shoot

Day 5,6,7 – Develop and grade film

Day 8, 9, 10 – edit/montaggio

I used Adobe After Effects.


Tamatete Gallery, Rome

Twenty people of different ages and different nationalities were interviewed in Milan, Italy in 2003.

Each person was asked a similar set of questions around universal themes: family, love, travel, school, food.

A single narrative was constructed from all the interviews and presented as a nine-screen video installation in the Ta Matete Gallery in Rome.

Smart fixtures using RFID technology

Fixtures enabling people to access information about physical garments that they place on the smart surface, using radio frequency identification (RFID).
An RFID antenna is positioned within the fixture, connected to an RFID reader that is connected to a computer.
Each garment has an RFID tag attached to it that contains a unique identifier.
By placing the garment on the smart surface, the RFID antenna detects the RFID tag. The RFID reader transmits the unique identifier to a digital asset management database (DAM), which displays related product information on the screen of the smart fixture.
