Valparaíso Brushwood Garden is an exercise to conceive an architectural common space for many artworks that symbolize different creative forms of life. Virtuality links artworks as different kinds of brushwood (words, images, sounds, letters, gestures…). Each brushwood tells a precarious story as a gesture of resistance and infinite value beyond artistic activity. The sprouted garden is the communication spot between all artworks, a place that allows them to live in dignity, opening a possible future for arts and better ways of inhabiting. In this sense, virtual space is an experimental material to conceive new territories.

Valparaíso Brushwood Garden

Valparaíso Brushwood Garden is an open task to envision a space in which creativity overcomes adversity and precariousness. Growing as brushwood in the wildlands, creativity always finds new materials to work with, new ways to survive, new forms to communicate ideas and create relationships, beyond economic approaches. This is an exercise to conceive an architectural common space for many artworks that symbolize several creative forms of life.

Words, images, sounds, letters, gestures… all different sprouts that coexist and share a common place, unknown to the official cartographies. Spaces, Ecologies, Memories and Resistances are the main concepts in which this virtual space has been conceived and built. Against precarization or any monolithic idea of experience, Brushwood Garden seeks alternatives to imposed mapping forms or ways of inhabiting, always forcibly separated or stacked, many of them considered truly brushwoods.

This sprouted garden is conceived as a communication spot between all artworks, a place that allows them to live in dignity, opening a possible future for arts and better ways of inhabiting. In this sense, virtual space is an experimental material to conceive new territories.
