Flooding the Palazzo

Performance model concept

A human floats between 4 feet and 1 foot below ground level within the Palazzo Stampalia Querini. Using plexi glass, museum board, dye, glitter, and water I flooded a 1/8" - 1" model of Scarpa's first floor renovation. Rather than controlling water like Scarpa did, I unleashed it to illustrate the levels below ground that a human can occupy. The darker the water, the farther below ground level a visitor is. I then re-made the 1/8" model and flooded the space with gel wax in order to have a solid version of what was shown in the first flood. The varying densities of the gel color illustrate the dye within the first model.
