The work here presented represent a series of participatory installations, as I describe the visual poetry art environments I create, devoted to eco-sustainability and social inclusion, by bringing both production and reception of my imagery, from a mainly visual experience centered in the use of sight, to the realm of empathy, by developing my own ecology of care. 

In my installation based participant observation research, I choose to focus on exploring an all senses' depth based type of experience, for both myself as creator of the artworks and  their environments, and for the receiver of my message; particularly through touch and my visual poetry's performance and soundscapes.

This page is focused on sharing how a printmaking process I have been experimenting with over the past three years, is allowing me to create and promote social inclusion through a touch based, rather than only a sight based, experience of my visual poetry participative installations. This way by opening the conversation about accessibility and agency representation within my image making creative process.

During my artist talk and solo exhibitions, I encourage the audience to interact with the printed material I create, experience which stems from the first chapter of my “The Timelapse - From Sight to Touch”, five year autobiographical documentary (2018-2022).

This body of work explores the theme of loss, vulnerability and resilience in my life, and in particular both my need and vocation to hold space for empathy, in order to create my own ecology of care through my visual poetry art practice, which I have chosen to devote to the promotion of social inclusion in the Visual Arts, and in particular in photography through the creation of a series of participative installations. 

The Timelapse - From Sight to Touch by Letizia Lopreiato

- As photography brought sense to the chaos. It all then transformed from a journey of loss, into one of love … - Letizia Lopreiato

The Timelapse - From Sight to Touch is the latest result (2022) of socially inclusive visual poetry, created by installation artist Letizia Lopreiato.

This body of work which is being created between 2018 and 2022, depicts the healing journey of both the artist and of her mum, following the passing of the artist’s dad, and a series of traumatic events which followed. It is Lopreiato's way to bring justice to both stories, honoring through art the most transformative moment that trauma and grief presented to them; a journey which deserved to be narrated and shared as a story of self-empowerment in their identity as women. It tells the tale of how both the artist and her mother came home, home to themselves, and home to one another ... A story that embodies the transmutation of loss into the highest source not only of strength and courage for her, but above all of resilience and faith in life.
