A very cool, detailed, tiny project by Rob Sato:


"Small Fictions", 2009

1” to 1.5” paintings, mounted in slide holders

I used to work in a library with an old slide film catalogue. There were thousands of slides documenting art, events, etc.  I like slides—they’re neat objects. I enjoy attempting to see what is going on in them at their actual size rather than have the image projected. If you have ever experienced slide photography you may have noticed their particularly vivid quality and depth. The color in slides can be especially saturated and pulsing, and something about these extraordinarily detailed but miniaturized moments captured in a 1 x 1.5  inch frame is magical to me. During secret downtime at the library I would go get a random box of slides, always favoring the journalistic photos over the art documentation ones, and place them on the special light table just for viewing them and peer into a forgotten world. I would see things like a Black Panther Party rally shot by an anonymous photography student or just some dude eating a sandwich on a rooftop with a spectacular view of the bay. Many of the slides came with corresponding captions typewritten on cards that said things like, “Man eating sandwich, Alameda, CA, 19-whenever”. I’ve always enjoyed the flat, just-the-facts, quality of photographic captions. They have a quiet, accidental deadpan humor. I remember some captions which struck me back then—“Field with burning car, Vallejo, CA” and “Chinese shop-women throwing hats”.  Their lack of context, for me at least, is enigmatic. For all their straightforward language they’re utterly opaque—“Uh, yeah so this picture is exactly what this picture is a picture of.”

When trying to come up with ideas for stories I used to write imaginary blurbs that I might be able to use to create a spark. Most of them came to nothing, but I had notepads littered with them. I even threw them all out. I found them while rummaging in the trash for some drawing I had tossed. After reading them over again I was reminded of the slide captions from the library and the rescued story fragments led to the creation of these 34 tiny watercolors made to resemble slides. I hope they convey something of my own experience of looking through a very small window into an alternate, nearly lost universe. I’ve included some with their captions.

The Visionary Worlds of Agostino Arrivabene

Agostino Arrivabene lives and works in a seventeenth century iron-gated house outside Milan. His home provides the secluded, protected environment in which he finds the solitude and space necessary to create his stunning paintings. Arrivabene says, “My house is like a nautilus shell wherein time has stopped. Inside you will encounter a rarefied atmosphere where … scarlet velvet mingles with coral-colored walls, and ancient, deformed animals watch over my slow, artist’s movements, and where the window seeps in northern light which floods the floors a blue pearl color, much like that of the exhumed dead. I live just as certainly as a hermit or an old ghost, a sweet dog by my side and a Ukranian maid who looks after me from time to time.”

And from this “nautilus shell” of his seventeenth century house “wherein time has stopped,” Arrivabene’s masterful paintings in turn have the ability to stop time and create suspended intense moments outside quotidian time. Arrivabene has written of his work as forming a “wunderkammern” or “a room of curiosities,” such as those created to display the trophies brought back by adventurers returning from foreign expeditions. This points to the painter, Arrivabene, as an explorer  returning with  bizarre and extraordinary fragments or treasures  from  strange, new visionary worlds.
