Abstract

The concept is to use art as a means to highlight key findings from IQP projects that were conducted in Venice since 1988. It is the desire of this initiative to develop installations to be scattered throughout Venice to peak the interest of passersby, hinting at some of the issues that have affected Venice in recent years. These displays will be subtle, engaging the senses, and be very meaningful. The installations will be coordinated throughout the city and also hope to engage young people in urban issues by the use of gaming and artistic expression. The goal of this IQP is to provide a blueprint for implementation of these installations. In addition to being used by this initiative, such a blueprint could be used by urban youth to produce their own artistic commentary on the issues.
