Stones of Venice: A Critical Geology
RISD Global Summer Studio
June-July 2023
This 3-week, 3-credit summer studio critically investigates the "stones" of Venice: brick, Carrara marble, Istrian stone and trachite form the geological crust of the city that experiences regular inundation, material erosion, physical traffic, and salt action. By attending to the space immediately above (and below) Venice’s watermark, this studio flips the perspective on the built environment through a close reading of its ground cover. Students will develop works that represent, document, and reimagine Venice's ground. Looking beyond the touristic gaze, we will be directly engaging the city’s materialites, layers, and proximities to water.

The studio’s final student exhibition and concluding conversation was held at Palazzo Bembo, Venice

Co-taught with Haley MacKeil, printmaker / papermaker and RISD EFS critic.

Collaborator: European Cultural Academy
