Exhibition at the 15th International Architecture Venice Biennial
Time-Space-Existence Collateral Event, Palazzo Mora (May – Nov, 2016)
Uncovering Providencia was a parallel exhibit based on research and design developed for Divining Providencia and also uses the table as a medium to explore alternative ways of unveiling a narrative about a multi-scalar approach to sustainable economic development in the Amazon. In this case, the installation is made up of several layers of paper placemats that the audience can take away as useable objects, and not as the typical brochures that turn into waste as soon as they leave the exhibition venue.
As people remove placemats, new information is uncovered. Six scales –World, Amazon, Region, Port, Products and People- reveal some of the interdependent relations between social, economic, environmental and spatial aspects in the Amazon region.
