The Floating City is a video artwork which explores Venice’s unique transport system. The canals of the city appear timeless, beautiful and calm in comparison to the frenetic, car filled streets of other cities.

Foster finds endless fascination in observing the variety of specialised boats that churn the dark green waters as they navigate their way through the twists and turns of the intricate canal network.
