6. Dripping tales of the undomesticated

Performance and installation realised in the spaces of Drop City during Fuoriasalone 22.

Starting from the notion of the third landscape, it is that we decide to follow the narrating voice of nature in those lands where it reclaims its presence. Present by Nature sets out to experience and comprehend the natural ecosystems surrounding us, learning adaptation from inadaptation. Storytelling becomes a tool for shaping and sharing the experience, whereas fiction sets the pace for collecting a repertory of traces of collaborative research-creation. The traces can be reactivated and each time is to initiate a new iteration. Here we follow the water as a guide and the infiltration as its map, to explore a space where the absence of human activity has created a refuge for the preservation of biological diversity. The intervention will unfold and emphatise the proliferation of the leakage, accompanying its flow around the tunnel and out of it, slowly discovering what this collusion of macro and micro scale can convey.
