Memento Mori/Memento Vivere in Venice
Fondamenta Nuove hangs on the back of the Jewish Ghetto, serving primarily as a transportation gateway to other parts of Venice by vaporetto. In the evening, the waters slowly begin to steady. Each surface captures the twilight in anticipation of dusk -- a daily, triumphant display of Serenissima light before it fades to darkness. From here, you can see droves of gondolieri signing off from their shifts and Il Cimitero di San Michele standing in the distance like a fortress of death. This under-appreciated vantage point of the Adriatic Sea lends itself greatly to those who will afford it a moment of their time. The rhythmic lapping of waves soothes you into the sleepy-time soul of Venice.
