"Ciò che muore"
The extensive presence of flowing water through Rome's fountains combined with fresh produce markets inspired this installation. Enlarged seeds create a canvass of textures found in the city's surfaces, reducing hard impenetrable walls to hand-held pods holding information for the future. I find the accessibility of the most relevant elements of a culture, food and water, true marks of civilization, worth celebrating and memorializing.
