“The identity of nuns with guns alterego in portrait is voluntarily misleading”
A RADICAL ARTIST VISION
“I STARTED PROJECTING AT FREE PARTIES, BECAUSE ‘FREEDOM’ IS WHAT
REALLY MATTERS TO ME, AND TO BE CLOSE TO THE RECEPTORS OF THE MESSAGE I WAS TRYING TO EXPRESS.
NUNS WITH GUNS GOT THE NAME BECAUSE I WAS USING OF A VISUAL TOOL CALLED THE ‘CONCEPT SHOOTER’ (SPARACONCETTI)
A FAST WORDS PROJECTION FREE SOFTWARE (COPYLEFT)
THAT WAS USED TO BRAINWASH PEOPLE THAT WATCHED TV
IN ORDER TO HEAL THEM FROM THE HOMOGENY THAT THE MASS MEDIA CREATED, AND TRANSFORM THE CULT OF IMAGE TO THE CULT OF ART THROUGH A CRITICAL PASSAGE”
NWG IS AN IDEA TO OFFER TO TELEVISION ADDICTED VIEWERS A DIGITAL IMAGES PLAYGROUND WHERE THE VIDEO IS SEEN AS A POTENTIAL INSTRUMENT FOR MIND ALTERATION A TRANSCENDING KEY OUTSIDE THE TV CABLE SYSTEM
NUNS WITH GUNS CAN BE SEEN ONLY LIVE
