Artistic production in educational environments
The agricultural landscape of the Magro river, located in the province of Valencia, has provided an excellent frame to develop a series of land art interventions, site explorations, field mappings and seeding activities. The workshop proposes a connection to the territory which provides a significant place to generate sensitive-sustainable actions and reflections.
Through an educational and participatory process with kids, the project aims to sensitize and build consensus on ecological values as a link between art and nature. A series of sensitive approximations to generate unique experiences of the local surroundings.
The project proposes a multi-layered approach as a conductive thread that links different experiences: textures, scents, sounds, tastes and scenes. In this way, the site-intervention explores the sensory experience of touching, smelling, observing, tasting and listening.
Through a series of collaborative workshops with students of Real Valencia School, the project is focus on the relationship between nature and senses. A series of actions developed from artistic-academic processes through the dialogue between the kid´s sensory experience and their own landscape.
The project explores the use of low-impact and natural materials that respond to the unique characteristics of the context. It also explores the use of nature -wind, sound, lights, shades, aromas, textures – from the local environment.
