The communicating vessels

Workshop_36/I vasi comunicanti

led by Géraldine Py and Roberto Verde
March 14-15, 2014

Through the collective construction project a network of communicating vessels was created – obtained with recycled materials – with the theoretical intent to give rise to conversations around the economy of exchange, distribution of goods and capital, methods of development alternative to the market global.
The communicating vessels (two or more containers joined by a connecting channel) constitute a physical, biological, economic model and are the proof of the holistic principle: “Everything is greater than the sum of its parts”. In communicating vessels, the shape is global because the water level depends on atmospheric pressure but not on the shape or size of the individual vessel.
