Acqua Alta references the sinking of Venice and the relationship the island has with water.

One of the cities chosen by the collective for the series Inventory is Venice, the historical layer of the importance of streets in the city. When objects in Manhattan have a history going back 100 years, and objects in Kadıköy going back 20 years, in Venice it is possible to experience street objects from the middle ages. In the wells and fountains of Venice, less human interruption can be seen in comparison to other works. Most of the wells and fountains in the city are remnants of a great cultural heritage created by craftsmen and artisans.
