"The project entails the design, printing and free distribution of one million postcards, to be given away to the general public during the 2009 Venice Biennale.
The 100 motifs depict a variety of WATERWAYS from around the world, overlaid with a graphic that spells out ‘Venezia’ in a variety of typical postcard styles. The generic photographs are sourced from a commercial online image bank, and a graphic designer collaborated on the typeface."

BIENNALE.NET: THE DISCOURSE, THE HISTORY AND THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET PAVILION
"Neither a fair nor an exhibition, NO SOUL FOR SALE is a convention of individuals and groups who have devoted their energies to keeping art alive. The Festival will be an exercise in coexistence: organizations will exhibit alongside each other without partitions or walls. As on the set of the legendary Lars Von Trier’s
movie Dogville, participants will be assigned spaces that are only marked on the floor, creating a map of an imaginary city of art, where distances and hierarchies are abolished."
