Fabio reanimates disjointed pieces of the world and organises them into coherent forms. De Minicis is fascinated with letters, their forms, their personality. He searches the streets, where objects speak to him in the shapes of characters, which he takes and brings together and groups in families to create a new and original alphabet. In one alphabet, each letter is made entirely from scissors; another alphabet is formed with every letter taking its shapes from common kitchen tools. Recycled materials are the starting point of Fabio`s work. One person`s waste becomes not only useful again but gives us a completely different perspective of something we thought we knew. All objects, despite how inert they may seem, have something to communicate. Like the detective in Paul Auster`s story, City of Glass, Fabio De Minicis plays with the ideas of solid identity, walks the streets deciphering letters, searching and listening, as forms appear as if they had stepped out from the pages of an imaginative tale to tell their story
This is an invite to all friends, visitors and followers to collaborate and share this initiative and project we are currently undertaking. We are trying to find a global alphabet. This is a project where everyone is welcome to submit a letter or a number in order to create a global and international alphabet. We would love for this project to reach to as many people as possible, that is what makes this project a truly international one. Hence, we would appreciate your collaboration and share with as many people as you want and on as many social networking sites as you can.
