Project title
Tiber River Navigation
Project description

I want to make a series of artworks and interventions that focus on the Tiber River in Rome. Throughout the year, I will make drawings and woodblock carvings that explore the history of the river and its relationship to the city—more specifically, how it has transformed the city as a conduit of information, how it endured as a site of ritual and myth, and how it exists now as an “edge zone.” I will conclude the project by making a boat and traveling from Rome to the sea.
