EB&Flow present ‘Palermo in Venice’ by Alessandro Librio at the Venice Biennale 2011
EB&Flow is delighted to present 'Palermo in Venice' an audio and video installation created by the Italian artist Alessandro Librio. The project consists of a sound landscape adorning the city of Venice as if it were a dress that the city wears. The installation will bring to the city the only element that is present in all of the cities of the world except for Venice: traffic.
The soundscape of Palermo, the city with most traffic and sound pollution in Italy will be streamed live onto the streets of Venice, played to the city through a series of speakers distributed over a 24 hour period.
This culmination will also be simultaneously transmitted live to the EB&Flow website.
A special thanks goes to curator Attilia Fattori Franchini without whose help and dedication this project wouldn't have happened.
