Venice Biennale gardens reimagined by Eleni-Ira Panourgia for Cities and Memory global sound map. The original recording of the passing boat inspired me to listen to the water surface. The recording reveals traces of human activity and machines in relation to the space, the flora and fauna of that specific location in Venice. The piece ‘Surface’ focuses on the soundscape’s microcosm. Drawing from the issue of the rising sea levels that has troubled the area, sound is treated in ways to recreate and reimagine alternative climate and biodiversity conditions around water in the future cities.
