About:

November 26th, 2011 — November 25th, 2012

"What I'd like to remember of today?"

This is the question I asked myself everyday for one year. The answer took that shape of a drawing that I've beed posting on Instagram and other social networks, every night before going to bed—from here the project's name Night drops.
Each image is associated with the date of the day and a short caption. The result is a drawn daily journal. Its content is mainly about my daily life, what happens around in Shanghai and in the news.

I have bad memory and this project worked out as a tool to make me recalling much more of my past days, weeks and months. I might forget what I've done yesterday but i always remember what I thought before or during the making of a drawing.

I'm only interested in people engaged in a project of self-transformation—Susan Sontag.
This project is to be intended as the first exercise of a series to follow. This year I wanted to test and train my methodology and constancy over time with a daily iteration task. The colour paper framework has been inspired by one exercise proposed by Josef Albers in Interaction of Color,1971.

The drawings are realized with ink and acrylic on a 4x4 cm origami colored paper to be placed on a 14 x14 cm background paper with a matching color.
See the complete collection on instagram.com/ailadi or at ailadi.tumblr.com



The project has been presented at St.Regis, Bangkok on January 2012 with in a personal exhibition. The exhibition design is by Tommaso Maggio.
