Workshop. Art and ecology. Materials, foods, cycles (Barcelona, Spain)


The Blueproject Foundation present the workshop ‘Art and ecology. Materials, foods, cycles’.

Close to the harvest moon (or wine moon), is the moment for the harvest and food stockage for the winter. It is a moment of great seeds abundance and this workshop is a process that contributes to strenghten the connection between individuals and natural cycles.

The starting point is to work with natural materials. Work with unprocessed living materials, still unrefined and raw materials. Explore through them the biophilia, term coined by Edward O. Wilson, that refers to innate love to living beings. Reconnect of this way with the living beings through the sensorial experimentation.

The approach to these living materials related to nature: the seeds, the water that germinates them, the earth that supports them… allow us to incorporate them to the artistic practice so that contributes to reinforce the possibilities of care and regeneration beneficial to nature and environment.
