getting back to La Serenissima?
I’m doing this in the context of developing a work project, part of a proposition for an artist’s residency in Venice:
working with individuals exploring the watery city from a ‘below the parapet perspective’, the result might
be handmade, or perhaps digital, using a tablet or smartphone, maybe making a short moving image work?
I envisage the details becoming clearer and it’ll be good to see its form emerge and to name the project…
How the idea started: you may have seen these images (below/left), the fresh things garnered from looking &
seeing in my local neighbourhood
next, the words evoked by the images, affixed to separate cards;
and the images affixed to their cards, making a deck of both text & visual images
the whole deck could go in this tin, or I might make a container, wrap-around perhaps?
we now have a pocket game to play:- perhaps arranging words and pictures to create random mash-ups,
or consciously constructing new personal narratives
above is a friend’s fast, non-thought-out response to the cards, which he states reads
the tiny motorbike leaves the peeling banana tree standing
the the bench is waving at the steps near home
coloured ice-cream tree lights the community
through a blue vista
