Una rivista dedicata numero per numero a una cultura e a una lingua orientale e pubblicata dalle edizioni A Oriente! con il testo in lingua originale a fronte, in un vortice di alfabeti: di lettera in lettera, di segno in segno e, infine, di artista in artista.
A ogni artista  – per scelta, per destino, per caso – è toccata una diversa suggestione, un angolo di oriente: le prime RIVISTE d’ARTISTA … a Oriente!
Ciascuna copia è stata elaborata come meglio l’artista ha ritenuto opportuno garantendo un minimo di riconoscibilità.Così scrive Cristina Rossi nel testo di presentazione della mostra: ” Mi pare che ogni artista in questa mostra, proponga un diario di viaggio, nella forma di un fascicolo/rivista, attraverso un ’proprio’ Oriente, al di là del vissuto drammatico che assedia il presente lacero di conflitti e opposte ideologie; l'intuizione dell'artista, la ricchezza delle scritture, il mosaico delle lingue che compongono i singoli ’diari’ ci soccorrono nel desiderio di una diversa coscienza dei nostri confini˝.
L’iniziativa è inserita nel progetto Book City, promosso dall’Assessorato alla Cultura del Comune di Milano congiuntamente ad altri soggetti.

Charlie' night (Psyche)

I'm looking for you in the woods tonight,
I'm looking
Looking for you in my flashlight, I'm searching
From in the high or down the ocean
And I face myself in reason

Gain the wolf
Gain the wolf

Conjure me as a child
Slipping down a webside
Stretch up I cannot reach him
Jumping up they drag him from the water

I watch them march him into life
I watch them take him from the pale
Into the sky for your eagle eye
The sun seeds a sickle and a scythe

Ridicule they won't allow
Quench abuse and let love flower
Rip the cage out of your chest
Let the chaos rule the rest

Show without showing
What you know without knowing
Twigs snap eye / I catch no canoe only you and me
Alone on the ol' teal sea

Dissolving who we are
Call out for yesterdays destiny come
We're on a foreign shore
It was your mark of falling
I was the car still running
And when you call i'll be your shield for life
And if you feel it you will fly
The sun should have been with me

When I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in

The farm park of south Milan is a reality which Mirko and I appreciate it's the biggest green area of Milan: a beautiful reality that needs to be protected by building speculation.

There's a gap in between
There's a gap where we meet
Where I end and you begin

And I'm sorry for us
The dinosaurs roam the earth
The sky turns green
Where I end and you begin

(2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, get to heaven!)

I am up in the clouds
I am up in the clouds
And I can't and I can't come down

I can watch but not take part
Where I end and where you start
Where you, you left me alone
You left me alone

X will now mark the place
Like the parting of the waves
Like a house falling into the sea
Into the sea

I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive

There'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies

I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive

And there'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies
There'll be no more lies

I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive
I will eat you all alive

- Shall we do that again then?
- Do you really need to?
- I'm joking.

Oh Maria
Come slowly
Come slowly to me
I've been waiting
Patient
Patiently
I didn't
But now I can see

That there's a way out
That there's a way out

That there's a way out
That there's a way out
That there's a way out
