Description: Milano: Electa, 2010. 33cm., hardcover, 241pp. illus., most in color. English text. Summary: A highly personal interpretation of the light box enabled Elisa Sighicelli to play with light and the details of her photographs. Her partial illuminations, carefully studied, succeed in creating spatial depth and metaphysical concepts, that are almost beyond any dimension of time. Sighicelli's visual research focuses on comparing micro and macro scales on an equal basis, thanks to a conscious use of the horizon, the interplay of shadows and reflected light. This construction highlights the void which, when carefully studied and examined, assumes undeniable constructive importance. The space is wisely organized, pregnant with traces of memory, shadows and the unknown, but, without the human figure, only highly evocative. To begin with, the themes of the light boxes are details of interiors (chairs, beds, armchairs), then more open environments, followed by landscapes, drawing continuous inspiration from her travels. Along with photography, Sighicelli also explores the field of video, using the same care with regard to composition: Boudelaire (2004), Non-Stop Exotic Cabaret (2007), Nocturne (Trajectories) (2006), Dance-Bound (2007) up to her most recent works, the book provides a complete description of her work.
