Taxi Dermis 3 – Formations (Venice Biennale of Architecture 2012)

Taxi Dermis 3 proposes a system of public space generation via a journey through Venice in a water taxi, on foot and completed by a flying fox leap over the canal back to the Australian pavilion. This performance reveals the potential for increased porosity between the public and private domains in Venice, which Goodwin suggests will energise the evolution of the city when compared to the current separation of public (tourist) invasion and hidden (private) occupation. This revelation can then be built upon in later work, which explores site specific potentials for increasing this porosity, which suggest a transformation of the spatial logic of the city.
