Light alone is beautiful, but in Venice, it becomes magical. There is something about the misty atmosphere and ochre walled, winding pathways that creates a space for light to guide and amaze. Having returned to the United States from a five month stay in Venice, I wanted to create a work of art that evokes that same sense of magic that only a city like Venice can. My idea is to create an installation of at least 30 hanging wooden lanterns made from laser-cutting that emulate the surreal qualities of one of the most spectacular cities on earth.
