Artistic production in educational environments
Real Valencia School
Conceived as a link between art and nature and through an educational and participatory process, the project aims to sensitize and build consensus on ecological values. A series of three-dimensional spaces or sensory devices as interpretative links to communicate unique experiences of the environment and as instruments of approximation to the local surroundings.
The project proposes a multi-layered approach 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 the senses. A series of pieces developed from artistic-academic processes through a dialogue between the kid´s sensory experience and their own landscape.
Research-labs: spaces of knowledge, art production and dissemination that have been materialized into a series of exhibition spaces where children generate their own architectures and content. Spatial devices where the experiential site work and the landscape experience have been processed and displayed.
Through the participatory process the kids explore the use of low-impact and natural materials that respond to the unique characteristics of the site. They also explore the use of nature -wind, sound, lights, shades, aromas, textures – from the unique local environment. Sound pieces generated by the wind, orchards from local seeds, aromatic devices from collected herbs, visual herbariums and narratives, tactile seed drawings and leaves reliefs.
From the spatial devices, children explain and share their own experiences, understandings and concerns with the local community. Public dialogues that give a new connotation and function to their schoolyard.
