The exhibit will occur across multiple spaces: along with the Church of San Lio in Venice, there will be a site at The Cooper Union in New York City. Designed as a participatory exhibition, live feeds will connect the installations at all sites; video from New York City will be shown live in Venice, and live video from Torcello will be shown in New York City, directly engaging the source of the exhibition material. Thanks to these live feeds, people across the ocean will be able to interact virtually, congregating together, despite being many kilometers apart. Physical reproductions of architectural elements from Torcello, projections of light, point-cloud data and photographic imagery, and interactive software will engage the viewers, facilitating a contemporary experience of Torcello across time and space.
