Matteo Rossetti ART

EN/IT
MAIL ART

I start by taking a photo. We used to call it a snapshot.
Then I take it apart and dismantle it into many of pieces.
Every one of these pieces are individually printed and put into a their own envelope.
The envelopes are then separated; each one goes its different way, like tree leaves in the autumn.
They leave on a long journey. They leave with the hope of coming back, sent to the most remote parts of the planet.
On the paper, traces remains of kilometers, the sun, the hot, the old, pieces of dust, sand, rain drops from far afield, fingerprints.
On the paper experience and time remain.
Once the image is reassembled it’s no longer a snapshot.
It is s an accumulation of time and of distance.
