Palazzo Venier Prints

In search for a new association based design language I created an association test that was based on Palazzo Venier’s original facade. The test, consisting of individual cards showing abstracted objects, has been presented to the visitors of the Guggenheim Museum in Venice. Their sketches, showing associations with the displayed object, have been recombined into new facades and preserved in CNC linocuts.

  Palazzo Venier Prints – Exploring the Outcome of culturally informed Association Chains, Y5, Tutors:   Prof. Laura Allen,   Prof. Mark Smout  Palazzo Venier which hosts the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, serves as ideal test-field to develop a method for association-based updates: Built in 1750 but never finished, the single story palazzo at Canal Grande forms the only gap in the scenery of Venice. Every day, the lagoon is flooded with international visitors: can their inner worlds serve as design resource to disrupt the city’s image? An association test is generated out of key elements of the palazzo’s unbuilt facade and presented to the museum visitors. The results contain hints to the person’s cultural background and associations to their stay in Venice. Preserving them in a linocut - an associative façade record - allows experimentation through reproduction and re-composition.
