Description

Llim (silt) adheres to the canals and glass tubes, connecting them, and progressively assimilates the layers that make up Venice. That a city surrounded by water became the glass-making centre of the Western world is due to viscosity: the ability of glass and water to mutate between states of matter facilitates collaboration and coexistence. Water has fertile power because it becomes silt when in contact with the earth. From the black mud of the Nile comes the Arabic word khemia, alchemy, which found a source of inspiration in glass. Llim does not aspire to the obtaining of gold nor of the quintessence: it moves Venice’s foundation with the same calm that it metabolises and returns the materials to their origin.
