The “Briccole code” console is an interpretation of what the briccole recovered from the Venice lagoon represent. The “Briccole code” portrays Aristotle’s five elements. Fire, air and water are the elements that have left their own mark on the outside of the tree trunks; earth and ether are the elements that produced them. The project is a DNA or a codification of the briccola in the context of the Venetian landscape.
