venice
------

wow. venice is incredible and the pictures
don't begin to account for it.

jeanette winterson's words in
the passion begin to.

a canal
a house on the grand canal
trying to find anything, much less your hotel, is a challenge
me sitting in a window
a gondola, which i did not ride, from our window
the water was easy to watch
a fish
after getting drunk by a canal
a church
detail of a skull
a small shrine
look, another picture of a canal!
circles on a house
statues on a roof
the guggenheim


la biennale di venezia
-----------------------

the biennale is a biannual art festival in venice
where representatives of 50-60 different countries show work.
by the end of the day, i was all arted out.

a sign
art for a better life
this is a log
synth in perma-dischord
jes as barbarella
lara and jeff were also pink
disco ball
a whole floor of this
little people seemed to be a theme
these were machines that bowed
this tunnel was full of bass
jeff and lara and a remote controlled ceiling
a whole lot of glass bulbs


murano
------

murano is an island near venice where
blowing glass has been
the primary trade for centuries.

an oven
he's making an angel
note the chandelier
this is not murano, but a ruin near it
