Martina Unterharnscheid was in eastern 2017 a guest in the artist residence CASAdelDRAGON and did some “ecoprints” with fig and olive leafs of the color garden.
The famos german artist and art promotor in the EIFEL – region in germany was working a second time in the residence. As part of her investigation she collected different wood, plants leafs and other organic material. As part of the UNIIE activities she will offer workshops and classes in the future.
We finished the first arrows of the signpost in the sculpture garden and mounted them. As a remark from Mihaela from Lugoj, that are exactly the colors of the romanian flag. So welcome Mihaela :).
In the next days we will complete the installation with arrows to Martha´s home, the german home unit of Familiafeliz group EL-DRAC. If you want to be part of the project check this page and mount your own signpost.
We mounted a second signpost in the garden of LA SENIETA – the bio garden refugium of Clara. The signpost will host some links to the familiafeliz destinations and Clara will add some new locations of friends working in the field of permaculture, bio gardening, medicinal plants and social cultural projects like the color garden or the artist residence CASAdelDRAGON.
Do you want to mount your own signpost? Here is the form to calculate distance and direction.
We created the second step to the entrance of the sculpture garden. First we prepared the cladding, then we supported it with a ring of heavy stones. Inside we places some nice natural stones and mortar.
The rest of the step we filled with little stones and concrete.
After waiting 4 hours we unmounted the cladding and we did the finish of the natural stone wall.
One aspect of the color garden is, to realize a premanent exhibition area for landart and sculptures and installations. To enter the garden, each visitor has to reach the different levels in the garden. We started with a first step. And we imagine, it will be the first of 1.000 steps…
Rebecca asked how long it will take to create one step. We calculated 8 hours of working (moving material, mounting, the finish, mosaic on top). So we are in front of 8.000 hours ahead…
The austrailian photographer and video artist Rebecca Metcalf visited FamilaFeliz in Cervera del Maestre. She did some shootings in the color garden, the CASAdelDRAGON and abroad in some ruins in the mountains near Chert.
Metcalf is on the way to figure out a large documentation about living communities worldwide and she founded FamiliaFeliz on IC.ORG and decides to join us for a short time.
In the last years she was visiting living communities in the U.S., now in Europe and later she will make research in Oceania, Neusealand and her home country Australia.
