Rapsodie, 2DayBit and new projects!

Some of my poems, two unpublished until now, are featured in the June issue of  Le reti di Dedalus, in the Audio Poetry section.
The direct link to the audio file and to the downloadable pdf is http://www.retididedalus.it/Archivi/2014/giugno/audio_poetry/3_giordano.htm

Last week I was in Rome for a new photo set with photographer Paolo Del Frate and the make-up artist Deborah Tufano, I’ve seen the previews: cool stuff online soon!

I’m writing something different from poetry lately. It is a rather long work especially for the endless historical research that I am conducting in order to give a good base to the final product, in spite of this I think that it will be ready by the end of August. I found the perfect place for writing in Campania, a very nice café where the homemade ice cream is great. I admit that sometimes (always!) I miss the café in New York or Milan, but here there are fewer distractions. However, I scheduled a trip to Milan next month for some collaborations (and I’m so happy to meet all my friends!).

After the release of my last visual project #BornToBeVirtual (Oct. 2013), I’m also working on two new digital series.

One last thing: the blog of the new project 2DayBit is officially online, it is updated by me and my friend Alice. Yes, I know, someone will say: “Does the world really need another fashion blog?”. Well, do not worry: it’s not exactly a fashion blog, let’s say – for now – that the “fashion thing” is just a “cover”.
A cover for what? You will see in the coming months!

A huge thanks to all my supporters!

#BornToBeVirtual

3 Questions about #BornToBeVirtual

#1 – Could you briefly summarize the concept behind #BornToBeVirtual?
Sure. Imagine you are a child. You still know nothing about but your parents and family are sharing  indelibly online information, photos and events about your childhood. Now you’re grown up, it is 2030 and you attend college, searching on the internet for your name anyone – with minimal technical skill – can draw a fairly detailed timeline of your life and find many of your photos as a child. How would you react?

#2 – So you’re against the social networks?
No, I’m not against them. I’m just wondering how to use them properly and what the word “privacy” means nowadays.

#3- Are you really expecting Noah Mason Davis?
Great Scott! No, absolutely not! Noah Mason Davis is obviously a fictional character.

3 Domande su #BornToBeVirtual

#1 – Puoi riassumere brevemente il concetto di #BornToBeVirtual?
Certo. Immagina di essere un bambino: senza che tu ne sappia nulla i tuoi genitori e parenti condividono online in modo indelebile informazioni, fotografie ed eventi sulla tua infanzia. Ora sei cresciuto, è il 2030 e frequenti l’università cercando il tuo nome su internet chiunque, con la minima competenza tecnica, può tracciare una timeline piuttosto dettagliata della tua vita e trovare fotografie di quando eri piccolo. Come reagiresti?

#2 – Quindi sei contro i social network?
No, non sono contro i social network. Mi sto solo chiedendo come sia corretto utilizzarli e quale sia il significato della parola “privacy” attualmente.

#3 – Sei davvero in dolce attesa di Noah Mason Davis?
Grande Giove! No, assolutamente no! Noah Mason Davis è ovviamente un personaggio immaginario.
