THE TRIUMPH OF VENICE (after Veronese)
The camera at evening attempts to make sense of the light levels refracted through a dirty window on a vaporetto travelling across the lagoon from the airport to Venice. The wooden piles marking time as during the journey, the fading light causes the lens to focus (on its own temporal journey) subsequently on the glass, the lights outside and finally as the dark becomes almost total, on the reflection of lights inside the boat.

Printed T-shirts (made in the country of distribution?)

The distribution of these shirts themselves and the subsequent photographs around the world – amongst the poor and the rich respectively.
