Tracce means traces, and traces are left by pioneers and read by explorers. We want to be both.
What we want for our practice, but especially for ourselves as humans, is to be influenced by a number of different things. For this reason, we’ve put together this series of talks, that apart from the field of architecture alone, expands towards photography, book making, videography, art, curation and technology. Expanding conversations towards different fields allows us to transversally read and discuss common traits but from different points of view and build a database where ideas, inspirations and provocations are shared.
Some of the confirmed guests are:
GrilloVasiu – architects
Marco Barbieri – photographer
Cassiano Sala – director of Squint/Opera
Tamsin Green – architect and photographer
Lucy Mclauchlan – artist
Marco Oggian – graphic artist
Magda Sayeg – founder of Knitta Please
The talks will consist in a 30 minutes presentation from the guest and 30 minutes discussion with the moderator, Studio Traccia and the public.
A Data/Base of shared interests, common threads and information will be generated as the talks go on, informing a live source of inspiration from the creative industry, for the creative industry.
Each guest will then nominate another person from their own network, to be a next speaker of Tracce. This mechanism will allow the project to expand organically, and venture into new territories. The objective is to explore new cues, establish new connections, interweave a network of people and hopefully fuel unexpected collaborations.
Tracce will be not only an online webinar, but also an active and expanding networking opportunity, which is very important for the whole creative industry in this very complex moment.
