LAPO SORRIDE (he/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, fragmented and polyphonic creature. Focusing on sustainable practices they creates immersive environments and portal-like objects made of rags, clay, dirt, branches and wax, scents as well as printed digital landscapes and granular surfaces, implemented with sound manipulation. Lapo is a digital surfer interested in the potentiality of easter eggs, rabbit-holes and community building within the realm of the dark web.
As Kinked composes leftfield music and curate mix series for Radio Sygma and 00185fm.eu. Is also known as the tenco-grime lyricist Dori Sorride







I create immersive environments and portal-like experiences that transcend the boundaries of traditional representation. In doing so, I investigate re-enchantment strategies aiming to collective healing, embracing a neo-materialist approach and prioritizing post-human figurations.

I employ a range of media, including rags, clay, dirt, branches, wax, smells, stitching, writings and lyrics, printed digital landscapes, CSS, tattoos and granular surfaces enhanced by sound manipulations: objects and hypersigils that envisions and manifests alternative realities, encrypted messages from the deep self,  desires and traumas.

I also navigate the potentiality of easter eggs, rabbit-holes and tools for community building within the realm of the dark web.

Nocturnal entities reveal their presences in rare peninsulas of land along the Po River. Shattered stars spit out faint synthetic textures that weave into nuanced narratives and granular gestures. 

Drift-bodies decipher their forms bringing light star-calling chant: 

another day flooded
I am here with no defense
Witnessing helicoidal practices
of forgiveness,
my Oblique Id-entities
like spotlights call out to you
this song speaks the truth
entity without horizon,
I no longer have sky
i'm an opaque being
entity without horizon,
I do not want the sky
but a translucent skin
Off-site show made for the shooting for the creation of the artwork of the album of the composer Giulia Rae.





... AS WATER LEFT OUR BODIES BECOMING WHEEZING DESIRE

In search of a name for this opera I find myself drawn to such phrases that begin with "as" since they seem to belong to a hidden pre-existing sentence. The essence of the title should convey the transformative nature of water into desire, as it departs from non-human/human/minerals(…) bodies. Despite its lack of grammatical perfection, the phrase “…as water left our bodies becoming wheezing desire” keep representing this precise feeling for me. 

As water leaves the body, it transforms into desire...
Does the concept of “desire” exists in a specific realm or in in-between states like water does? 

Water evaporates, forming a link with our surroundings. Inspired by this ethereal pattern, desire extend beyond our physical selves. 

As water leaves, a metamorphosis occurs within the depths of our souls. The transformative power of water, the element that quenches our physical and spiritual thirst intertwined with the intensity of our longings. It wove its way through the fabric of our beings, leaving us forever changed.

Through the symbolism and embodiment of the transformative power of water in a dramatic and plastic work I found a way to communicate the depth of my desires. Those are desires of warmness, beauty and care, together with the desire for the transposition of an imperfect digital garden into the the realm of offline life.

HARVESTING THE NET

SOUND DESIGN, 2024

Video Essay by REINCANTAMENTO, 19'


  
The internet has changed. What was once a space created for free expression and communication has become a militarized tool for surveillance and algorithmic control. Among the different ways to remember the web as a liberated space, Harvesting the Net explores the notion of digital gardening. From the early internet days, digital gardens were conceptual maps and blueprints towards an online well-being, but like many other memories, it risks becoming another appropriation for enhancing atomic productivity. In this video essay, we summon the millenary, global history of gardening, to recover hidden symbols and forgotten meanings. By cultivating a garden as “a natural territory of hope”, we enchant the dull reality of today’s Web and occupy the horizon with a thousand blooming spaces.Research and Writing: Alessandro Y.

A hypersigil is an extended, intentional artform woven with magic will to influence reality and nurture new narratives. It can manifest as a transformative relationship, a bridge between human and more-than-human realms, a deliberate selection of symbols to shape perception, or any event that channels unconscious forces towards a specific, empowered intention. As Grant Morrison points out, it is “designed to be effective over long periods of time, and to work on multiple levels of reality simultaneously”.
