Stones: Landscape Interventions
Working together for improved group cohesion.
Chalk, silicone for molds, plastic box, tempera paint, large paintbrushes and a camera.
- We analyzed the objects found in the landscape and chose a fragment of them: the stones.
- Each pupil brought along a stone collected in Oyón, part of the landscape they live in.
- Three of the collected stones were chosen and a mold was made of each one.
- The stone was placed in a folding plastic box which was filled with silicone.
- When dry, the box was taken apart and the mold was separated from the stone.
- The space left by the stone was filled with plaster.
- The stones collected were therefore reproduced and great numbers of identical copies generated.
- The copied stones were painted using colored tempera paints.
- The stones were used to mark important places for the schoolchildren: places for meeting, for playing, or where something worth mentioning had happened.
- With the stones on the floor, they drew shapes or symbols in each place.
- They took photographs to record their intervention in the environment.
