Start point and end point, non claustrophobic, protection without conservatism, avoiding perfection and just opened round. Minorca was the place for working this impermanent imperfect/open circles. From a figurative point of view, this abstract form resembles a cove and horseshoe, both are very representative of Minorca. The sea shore of this mediterranean island offers a combination of materials very attractive: neptune grass, stones, sand, water and salt crystals. Specially extraordinary is Neptune grass, which is endemic of this sea. It allows to make singular works and at the same time make an impression on tourists of how important is this algae for the environment. It generates a lot of oxygen and is the home place for an uncountable number of species. Neptune grass arrives at the sand and creates bumps and covers rocks. The upper layer is pale and dry but inside it’s dark keeping humidity and decomposing. These works were made in emblematic places like Favaritx, Cala Turqueta, Cala Macarella and Es Grau. (June 2017)
