In the artist's own words: “Transportation within Venice is composed almost entirely of boats, from public transport “bus boats” to DHL delivery boats as well as any emergency service vehicle. The city infrastructure faces the water – a hospital's main entrance is on the canal with boat docks to receive
patients. While the main canals are quite busy with traffc, I appreciate the serenity that lies within this particular canal.”
