Water is life (Rabbit In Your Headlights ver.)

This is a rework of the photo i sent for the Mail Art Collective about Water as good common. It was on display from last 2 june 2010 at ex-Pozzi Park in Corsico (Milano). Many artists from all over the world joined the event .

This work is about an italian government law proposal (DM 135/09, year 2009) that wants to privatize the management of public water supplies.

All this was in Europe when there were two different resolutions of the Parliament which affirmed that water is a "good common of humanity".

So in many regions of Italy the local authorities have refused the privatization process and affirmed the same as the UE Parliament and modified their statutes to protect water as a good common.

 

Questa è una rielaborazione del lavoro che ho mandato per la mostra collettiva di mail art sull'Acqua come bene comune. Si è svolta dallo scorso 2 giugno 2010 al Parco dell'area ex-Pozzi-Ginori di Corsico (Milano). Moltissimi artisti di tutto il mondo vi hanno preso parte.

Il tema è quello di contrastare la proposta del governo italiano (Decreto legge DM 135/2009 del 2009) di privatizzazione della gestione del servizio pubblico di fornitura dell'aqua. E tutto questo mentre in Europa ci sono state due diverse risoluzioni che affermano l'acqua essere "bene comune per l'umanità, e mentre gli organismi dell'UE hanno a più riprese evidenziato che “alcune categorie di servizi non sono sottoposte al principio comunitario della concorrenza”. Così molte realtà locali hanno già inserito nel loro Statuto un articolo a protezione dell'acqua intesa come bene comune pubblico.

  

Model: Mariella Tammas, who inspired this rework on the picture: thanks so much for your support (*smiles*). Her photostream is really awesome as u all know, I'm sure.

I'm a rabbit in your headlights

Scared of the spotlight

You don't come to visit

I'm stuck in this bed

 

Thin rubber gloves

She laughs when she's crying

She cries when she's laughing

 

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...

(Away....away....away....)

 

I'm a rabbit in your headlights

Christian suburbanite

Washed down the toliet

Money to burn

 

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...

 

Sample from movie Jacob's Ladder :

If you're

frightened of dyin' and you're holding on...

You'll see devils tearing your life away.

But...if you've made your peace,

Then the devils are really angels

Freeing you from the earth.....from the earth....from the earth

 

Rotworms on the underground

Caught between stations

Butterfingers

I'm losing my patience

 

I'm a rabbit in your headlights

Christian suburbanite

You got money to burn....

 

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away.....

Away, away, away,

Away, away, away.
