The proposal transforms the space into a giant interactive scenography defined by rows of fishing nets, which reminisces the structures built in the past by fishermen to dry their nets. This composition organizes the program, creating a huge set that absorbs the viewers’ shadows, allowing them to modify the environment and their perception of the beach. The result is a poetic installation, an interplay of transparency and permeability, a dynamic space moving with the wind and changing with the light, an installation to reflect on the simplest actions of the human being: thinking, moving, listening, observing, and meeting. Materials: People, gravity, air, light, shadows, fishing nets, and wood sticks.
