Description
Esmeralda, one of Italio Calvino's portrayals of the Italian city of Venice in his poetic work, Invisible Cities, is interpreted as a diagrammatic model.

The multi-leveled Esmeralda with its numerous routes, paths, and passageways in the form of canals, bridges, sewers, landings and innumerable levels, is constructed from layers of laser-cut corrugated cardboard from two-dimensional AutoCAD plans. Pastel drawings further interpret the space and design of the model and the idea of Venice as Esmeralda.
