The Digital Piranesi

Section of the Emissarium at Lake Albano

This is sample text to determine potential display methods for our animations of  Piranesi’s layered or composite images. These images include multiple layers of paper, stone, or other material arranged in ways that call attention to media and materiality in what are often some of his most technically specific images. In this image, he layers paper against a section of the emissarium or outlet of Lake Albano: ostensibly, they are informative, detailing elements of the construction, but, aesthetically, they have different effects.
