Paul Wong, 2006
6 min., colour, silent, single-channel w/ credits
With real and constructed reflected views we glide down the Grand Canal in silence. We enter a tighter waterway slipping past buildings on each side and go under foot bridges. The single view splits into multiple views, as we reach open water it returns to a single view. The journey is repeated in reverse and speeded up.
Recorded in Venice, Italy
Venenzia was featured in ZOOOOOM 5.2 as part of Paul Wong’s ‘5’, the series of site-specific installations and events commissioned by the City Of Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Public Art Program. www.5.paulwongprojects.com
