Acqua ma non troppo
Laurent Mignonneau and Christa Sommerer

This computer animation was created specifically for Venice with its fantastic cultural heritage. Sophisticated and rich artistic creations from past epochs present humanity at its best.

In times of climate crisis however, extreme weather events increase and cultural artifacts are in danger of being lost through rising sea levels and floods.

The animation Acqua ma non troppo presents extracts of historical paintings and motives as they float and disappear into a generative water landscape, creating mesmerizing, beautiful but slightly sad impressions of times lost.

All motives were photographed by the artists in Venice and reintroduced back at the Scuola Grande dei Carmini during the Re:Source Media Art History conference 2023.
