BY THE SEA
Audio Visual work
By the sea is an audio-visual portrait of the Venetian sea, structured in three main sections in which the observer’s gaze explores different elements: starting with the amorphous nature of the place, passing through its dynamic character in the second act, and finally reaching the feeling of holy intimacy in the last chapter.

Hwyl is a wide-meaning Welsh word that Tiffany Watt Smith describes as "the word for a boat sail [...] that means exuberance or excitement, as if clipping along on a guest of wind". Hwyl can also be used to say goodbye (Hwyl fawr - go with the wind in your sails).

The lagoon of Venice is a dynamic ecosystem that lives a daily struggle
for survival. A performative action on the salt marshes creates
a game of contrasts between fragility and resilience,
translating the landscape and sonic dimension on a human scale.
Audio Visual work
Veil – an audiovisual work by Claudio Bellini and Michele Deiana – originates from the idea of connection, which we all feel strongly these days: we are connected to others by virtual networks where we are the nodes and our relationships are the links. A virtual mesh, where vertices are the fundamental elements, is used as a similitude to evoke a network of relations.
