Selected Projects

The Porto Marghera sketchbook (2), 1997

These sketches belong to the time I was living in Venice. I always considered Porto Marghera, the industrial area along the Venetian lagoon, as another Venice. I never had the opportunity to visit these industrial buildings, as they were protected by walls and fences. I could just see them from the outside, sometimes even from far away. The technique I choose to represent them reflects this vision. I illustrated them as a projection on a front view, illuminated by zenithal light on a dark background. The ones shown here are done with mixed media. The majority of these buildings do not exist anymore.
