David Nash studied sculpture.
David Nash built a landscape with Wooden Boulder and Wooder Boulder built a whole imaginary through its journey. Where did that great wooden stone carved by himself end up? A great archaeological piece described in the rhythm of Georges Perec, recording the ordinary. From the spectacle generated by his journey to the Californian Hollywood spectacle. The revolution in Havana and its naïve communication campaigns and graphic escapism. A hundred flags to blind the anti-Castro messages of the USA. Every piece by Carlos Garaicoa that teaches you Marcos. Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi. The sad death of Alberto Corazón. Chillida Leku and Piet Oudolf. Louise Bourgeois. Olafur Eliasson transporting blocks of ice from Greenland to the outside of the Tate. If only a museum would melt. Melted heritage, intangible heritage. Allan Kaprow. Agnes Denes. Petit a Petit, a fable with an investigative air by Jean Rouch. Jeanne-Claude and Christo. A brief history of John Baldessari. What have we learned from Las Vegas? Back to Primavera Sound.

CRADLE TO CRADLE
A large carved stone as an active part during the installation, and as an archaeological piece after the intervention. A symbol that anchors the structure to the site, while at the same time giving it extreme stability against any kind of overturning.
Two precision cuts will be made into which the structure will fit. Once the intervention has been dismantled, the stone will remain in place, it will become another characteristic element of the landscape, giving a new life and a new image to the intervention. The carved holes where the structure used to fit in will be completed with two wooden elements that will return the stone to its original shape, but leaving the scars of its modification visible.
In order to optimise the use of materials, a modular construction system is used, facilitating assembly and guaranteeing the subsequent reuse of the elements. The structure is made up of 6 modular elements that grow vertically as they reduce their slenderness and 7 diagonal pieces that provide stability to the whole by anchoring themselves to the ground, together with the stone. Oh, the stone! The vertical elements, double and orange in colour, will be joined by 6x10mm maroon connectors, thus highlighting the structural composition. The 1 metre axis spacing between each of the modules facilitates the passage and adaptation to the linear composition of the vineyards. The structure is divided into 3 heights of 2.50m each to make the most of the panels, giving a total of 7.50m in height. The level below 0.50m will be painted white to give a greater sense of lightness.
Composed of two planes; a foreground that highlights the typography and an offset in the rear plane that provides volume. The letters on the back plane, white in colour, will be painted with photo-luminescent paint, so that they will accumulate energy throughout the day and will make the intervention visible and locatable from any point and scale of the landscape.
