PRATO BISENZIO INSTALLATION

One of the highlights of my work was being part of the Monash University program, where my built architectural and art installation based on the Bisenzio River, Prato, Italy was successfully published and covered by the local media in 2014.

The project is sponsored with the local fabric manufacturer and we obtained some off-cut fabrics to build an installation that aims to encourage people to be closer to the river and enjoy the stay. It is this relationship between art and people that influence and inspire the work I do.

The installation uses the knitting technique in joining the nature and the people. The proposal is there to generating the new memory on site. People were guided with certain openings within the installation to reconnect to the picturesque scenes.


There were a total of 5 installation sites along the river with various stories and iterations. We created a media to record the moments and to promote our installations.

The program highlights the collaboration between various groups and individuals. We started our iterations on Le Cascatelle then moved onto La Passerella to complete the construction.
