This installation was designed by the artist as a context for a dialogue between diverse elements and participants.  More than 100 people took part in several creative activities, ranging from structured workshops to casual street encounters.

The whole project explores collective creative processes using dance, performance and visual arts resources. It challenges the concept of the artist as a solitary maker and it opens the doors of a prestigious Art space to people who otherwise would never have an active presence in it.

The central tower and its grid are based on sections of the map of the area surrounding the “Centro de Historia”. They are  inspired by the traditional fenestrated windows of arabic origin. The multicolored floor follows also that tradition, linking it with the patterns that are often featured in some of Carlos Cortes’ paintings.

The 3D models at the right hand side of the tower were made using the cut outs of the main structure, working in an number of workshops with blind people and children.

The big mural by the elevator door was made by more than seventy people that  belonged to different groups. We used techniques like smashing balloons filled with paint, sticking stuff to coloured concrete, drawing, collages, etc...

The “graffiti” mural was made by a group of Down Syndrome people using “drawing machines” that make you dance in order to draw.

The unforgettable moments experienced by some of the participants during the creative process will remain within each individual’s memory, elusive and beyond the exhibition’s walls.
