The Digital Piranesi

The Outlet of the Cloaca Maxima into the Tiber

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 background of the outlet of the Cloaca Maxima: ostensibly, they are informative, detailing elements of the construction, but, aesthetically, they have different effects.
