The infrastructure of many cities around the globe is deteriorating and threatened by climate change. This video installation uses footage of the erosion and crumbling of Venice as a metaphor to bring awareness of the many places around the globe experiencing dire consequences from rising seas and man’s impact on the environment.
Venice is a city of canals. All of the built environment is reflected in the water. The installation portrays this phenomenon. Videos of the reflections of buildings, bridges, and doors marked by water and erosion create an atmosphere of instability and the beauty of what is being lost.
