Model n.3

A study model of a part of Porto with the empty space dedicated to the project area becomes the ideal scenario to become Zenobia, one of Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, based on the construction method chosen by the students.

MODELS are short stories of existing models or models under construction that are temporarily modified to evoke other landscapes, other than those of origin. Drawing on literature, imagination and pure visual suggestion, the photographs are documents of modifications, silent performative actions and lasting a few hours that stage the possibility that the model, from a mere tool, becomes an autonomous object with its own intrinsic meaning.
