"Acoustical Visions of Venice" was a live audio collage of sounds collected from 12 key sites within the city by microphones concealed at strategic points selected for both their acoustic richness as well as their historical and cultural significance. The acoustic signatures of these sites was simultaneously transmitted in real time to the Punta della Dogana, enveloping it within a rich mosaic of sound, many of whose origins are visible from the Dogana itself.

"Fontana posits himself as both archaeologist and diarist, mining the city's enduring history as he chronicles its transformations in the present day."
