Felipe´s artwork ‘Venice at a distance’ is on permanent display at the new UCL Student Centre. The overlay of images gives a painterly effect to the composition as if through the dense and humid air, the masses of buildings gradually dematerialise in the glowing light of Venice’s hazy and cold autumn days. Absence means to be away. This image represents the city of Venice as a place that remains away from our grasp, so we can recreate it through our memory and imagination. This work forms part of my PhD in Architectural Design thesis “Absence through layering: from experiencing urban leftovers to reimagining sites”, The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL 2017.
Preserving a temporary exhibition is what Bernadette intended to do by 3D scanning the British Pavilion at the Architecture Biennale in Venice in November 2014. She was interviewed by the British Council about her work, which you can find in the link.
