Poggio Reale

Poggio Reale
ink on paper (rubber stamp)
2200mm x 1480mm
2010

The lost garden of Poggio Reale is recreated in 3mm text using a rubber stamp. Once a revered Renaissance garden and now the site of a cemetery and prison, no comprehensive description or illustration of the original layout exists. Historic accounts were used to first propose an original plan then build the image through the repetitious stamping of these texts.
