(conceived and designed by Roberto Zanon, with the drawings of Isabella Bortolotto, is a design tool to implement the creative skills)
The Sinapsi Compositive are a tool that, initially linked to experimentation and learning at the Accademia di Belle Arti, want to become a "new" contribution to the creativity of the designer and stylist in project implementation. Organized on the structure of French playing cards, have as primary referent the Sibille, the divining cards, especially for graphical relationship between the text and the image. Next, but not least reference, is the series of cards Oblique Strategies by Brian Eno (1948) and Peter Schmidt (1931-1980) edited in 1975. The latter are important for the offer by a series of sentences, collected in more than a hundred different examples, always manage to find a contextualization precisely because of their indeterminacy. In this regard Giulio Mozzi writes that we not accept what the card says but we are confronted with what it says. That's means to see if the instruction or advice from the card can, perhaps paradoxically, maybe in a unachievable way, apply to our case. Perhaps, by reasoning, we will spring something bizarre, something seldom feasible, often something unexpected. This is the logic of the matter: deliberately push our ingenuity and our intuition to address an issue from an unexpected point of view or from unexpected conditions. The important thing is the jolt, not the advice itself.
