“Encuentros” is inspired on the rocks of “Playa Negra”, a black South Atlantic beach on the coast of Tierra del Fuego. It is a homage to the end of the world and a bridge to join distant places of Earth. “Encuentros” celebrates the encounter with Nature and the feeling of acknowledgement and delight given. “Encuentros” is a contact with textures that caress our bodies with messages of the past or a bath of moonlit that illuminates the rocks and exhibits their brightness. “Encuentros” proposes an evocative encounter place, to wait, to rest, to see and be seen and eventually meet oneself and Nature. “Encuentros” is a useful sculpture formed by four units of natural coloured grey, brown or black concrete. The units can be combined to form multiple configurations to compose a topographic site for encounter rituals.
