Ascension by Anish Kapoor at San Giorgio Maggiore, is an interesting mash-up of meteorology, theology and art. It was erected for the 2011 Venice Biennale, inside San Giorgio Maggiore. The installation consisted of a huge exhaust duct high up in the dome of the church and four banks of fans that caused the air to circulate around a smoke generator on the floor directly under the dome. Shades of the deadly 1970 "tromba d'aria" in Venice?
