Venice, Italy, with daniele sambo, 2018
As part of The Happenstance (by WAVEparticle), Scotland contribution to Scotland+Venice for the Biennial of Architecture in 2018. We were invited to spend a week in Venice activating the exhibition space and engaging young people in the city.
‘Pallone Gonflato’ was one of a series of playful, sculptural tools I made during the week. We took this round to many of the neighboring ‘Campos’, the few remaining places that children in the city have left to play in. We reclaimed Campo Santa Margherita and neighboring streets every afternoon with this oversized symbol of play.
Commissioned by Architecture Design Scotland and WAVEparticle, in collaboration with artist Daniele Sambo. 2018
