Naples, Italy

In the city of Mount Vesuvius and Dante’s mythical entrance to the Inferno, I found it important to try and deal with what it really means to go underground. The idea was to turn the tunnel inside out, like a sock. Of course, this relates to my interest in turning space inside out. An escalator going down into that felt right.
