Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May
With Marco Cappelletti, photographer
The cycle of workshops for all launched by Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana becomes digital and is conceived in collaboration with exceptional guests working in various fields of contemporary creativity.
The public is invited to take part in the activities by following simple instructions, meant to stimulate unique points of view on their own daily life. Each week, the activities are published on the website and on the Instagram e Facebook accounts with the hashtag #palazzograssiatyours.
On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May, photographer Marco Cappelletti presents the Open lab 'New codes' and invites us to observe the space outside our homes and think about the new codes that define it.
Marco Cappelletti is a photographer who lives and works in Venice. His work focuses on space and on how we determine it by modifying the environment to fit our needs.
Lines traced on the floor, duct tape, coloured bands and signposts are present more than ever in the places where we are used to hang out and define new rules that guide how we move in the space. Let’s create an illustrated album of these new codes by taking pictures of the visual impact they have on the urban landscape.
‘In the public space, as we go around our movements are now guided by signs placed on the floor. Two-dimensional elements such as arrows, lines, circles and squares enable us to safely experience the space. Let’s photograph these signs.’ Marco Cappelletti
These new elements become the protagonists of our pictures. Let’s focus on the ones placed on the floor or on the two-dimensional ones. We are not looking for written signs but for graphics signs. Remember not to photograph people’s faces. Share your pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #PalazzoGrassiatyours.
‘The public space is being modified by the use of vertical or three-dimensional elements that invite us to interact differently with the space. Let’s photograph these signs.’ Marco Cappelletti
