Watershed Venice 2022

WATERSHED is a large scale public art project that has moved around the world. It is a projection onto a highly visible site and its mission is to catalyze conversation about climate change and infrastructure issues that are critical. This project’s mission is to raise community awareness regarding climate change realities we face in our watershed, waterfront, mixed use community that we all love.

During the Venice Biennale 2022 WATERSHED was projected along a canal in a prominent location on the face of the Palazzina Canonica. The video was presented by Artport_making waves WE ARE OCEAN in collaboration with CNR-ISMAR during their one week programming of workshops and events around the theme of Marine life, our oceans. WATERSHED was particularly contributes to this discussion because the centuries old Venetian lagoon is critically threatened by rising sea levels. Locating this work along the waterfront raises awareness of the cities strategic yet vulnerable history and current situation.
