Wayfarer is the encounter between the imagination of an author and a territory, Garbatella, in which the author immersed himself for 30 days.

It is a process of re-appropriation.

Luca Brunetti tries to represent the neighborhood, while taking possession of it by using the sophistication of his own visual language, in order to pervade Garbatella's daily landscapes with a surreal atmosphere.

His personal imagination becomes embedded in the territory exalting it and creating recognizable but, at the same time, abstract uncanny visual itineraries. Just the author owns a sense of direction to get through them. The urban zone of Garbatella becomes part of an oniric dimension: rarefied faces chase each other, enlightened by artificial "Suns", glimpses of impossible saturations furnish a non linear narrative.

Surprised by this perceptual disorientation, we glimpse a fragment of the author's gaze, while he's working to modulate reality to get to intimately know it and to involve us in that.
