link futurism to roman culture
davide sabatello (italian futurism)
Through layering and montage, I have imagined a world where ancient Roman monuments are transformed into their future (possible) counterparts. The Trevi Fountain is an ice-skating rink, where the flowing water stops and freezes over. The Colosseum is a sports arena, still utilizing the original concrete seats. The Arch of Septimius Severus is transformed into an impossible metro station entrance. The open area of Campo di Fiori is transformed into a nocturnal carnival. The Marcellus Theater is converted to an open mini-mall.
