While on residency in Venice, Italy in June of 2017, I produced rubbings of the streets of Venice adjacent to canals that typically flood three months out of the year. The result became a print or an index of condensed time, much like the city of Venice itself. Thousands of years of water erosion carefully carved these delicate patterns. As sea levels rise, we may not be able to take dry records like these in ten years.
