Trevi Removed

A study of the Trevi Fountain and its role as one of the main tourist spectacles in the city of Rome. By removing it from the piazza it redefines it as a cultural icon, rather than a consumerist object. The famous view becomes occasional as it is only seen through a peep-hole in the surrounding wall. The wall is lined with mirrors to create an infinite unpopulated view of the spectacle which re-values the millions of toursit photographs from before, and historicises them as experiences, rather than mindless captures.
