Learning Curves is an interdisciplinary research project that explore urban rivers as places of contact between natural and urban landscape. According to the artist urban rivers are the result of the effects of production, of social, cultural and environmental heritage. Urban rivers are the central element of the transformation, a concrete landscape system, an entity in equilibrium in which all the natural and artificial elements can be variously connected.
The project has been developed in several locations:
Learning Curves/Magra (Italy)
Learning Curves/Kaitak River (Hong Kong)
Learning Curves/Danshui River (Taiwan)
Learning Curves/Shing Mun River (Hong Kong)
Learning Curves/Lizhiwan Creek (China)
