Colleen Corradi Brannigan’s Invisible Cities


Cities and Memory 5: Maurilia.

Colleen Corradi Brannigan’s multimedia project was linked here back in 2011 when news of her endeavours reached a number of high-profile websites. These artworks are another attempt to depict all of Italo Calvino’s cities, this time using a range of media that includes sculpture. I like the variety of this series; some of the depictions approach the more rigorous perspectives of MC Escher while others are as loose as Expressionist paintings. The website also includes extracts from Calvino’s descriptions.


Trading Cities 4: Ersilia.


Thin Cities 3: Armilla.


Cities and Memory 4: Zora.


Cities and Eyes 3: Baucis.
