“Contaminations” from the “In the Beginning” Series by A. Marinazzo


Adriano Marinazzo is an artist, architect, and scholar. Their projects are interdisciplinary works that include digital experimentation, spirituality, music, and academic research. Has taught virtual architecture and contemporary art at the University of Florence. In 2014, invited to participate in the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Currently, a curator at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at William & Mary. These photos have been created during the recent pandemic. The current restrictions brought me to work in peripheral areas where human encounters are rarer. But even in these places of social exclusion, anthropization (and consequent visual contamination) affects our environmental perception. In these works, we see how electric street wires interact/interfere with our vision of the sky. We can understand how nature, like human beings, is easily vulnerable to contamination, especially in these challenging times.

“Number 14” has been featured in the In Parentheses Spring 2021 Issue! Purchase here.



From the Editor:

We hope that readers receive In Parentheses as a medium through which the evolution of human thought can be appreciated, nurtured and precipitated. It will present a dynamo of artistic expression, journalism, informal analysis of our daily world, entertainment of ideas considered lofty and criticism of today’s popular culture. The featured content does not follow any specific ideology except for that of intellectual expansion of the masses.

Founded in late 2011, In Parentheses prides itself upon analysis of the current condition of intelligence in the minds of these young people, and building a hypothesis for one looming question: what comes after Post-Modernism?

The idea for this magazine stems from a simple conversation regarding the aforementioned question, which drew out the need to identify our generation’s place in literary history.

The Spring 2021 issue of In Parentheses Literary Magazine. Published by In Parentheses (Volume 6, Issue 4)

Author: Mr. Phillipe

Phillipe Martin Chatelain / @uptownvoice / Phillipe is the Managing Editor of In Parentheses. He is a poet from New York City with a Masters Degree in Poetry from The New School. He writes as someone in the tradition of the urban troubadour or the flaneur–wandering, taking notes. He believes that poetry of our generation has taken on a much more digital definition. Furthermore, it is important for New Modernist writers like those exhibited in In Parentheses Literary Magazine to assume the forms of media available in order to carry on the history of Sublime Art. His series taking shots alone was self-published in 2012-2015. The self-published collection FACETS (2019) is now available.
