Poor Tools

Photographic series of a collection of objects, created during an art residency on La Certosa island in Venice. We lived and interpreted the entire island as a residence, arranging several room-like spaces following suggestions from the environment. We collected natural and artificial finds, relics and trash, that we combined to create furnishings and furniture.

By only using found objects, given materials and tools we arranged five rooms around the island: kitchen / living room, bedroom, meditation beach, alchemical laboratory and cabinet of curiosities. The objects resonated with La Certosa – a unique environment mixing quietness and chaos.
