THE ACTUAL PEACE FUTUR
AND PIC-NIC IN THE SEATOWN
WORLD BALLOON FLIGHT FOR PEACE
The idea consists in
making a peace flight with balloons to land in Lasoberana, starting off
from the site of Graciosa at the end of the Event Algarve 2007, where the
idea consists of creating ephemeral spaces in a temporary intervention
in the landscape through multimedia installations, as an interludium to
the final and extraordinary realisation of the art communication center,
museum Lasoberana in Western Sahara.
The landing of this Peace
Flight at this very special location Lasoberana, where the seatown is projected
between Ocean and desert, is an act of identification and confirmation
of the physical equilibrium of a global state of mind of all people, independently
from their origin, belief or race.
Architects and sculptors
will cooperate in a contest to design an ephemeral construction as a huge
signal for the balloon pilots where to land.
Intrested people coming from
all over the world, as a manifestation of unity and identification, will
bring with them on their flight a handfull of earth from their homeland.
Upon their arrival at Lasoberana all these people, representatives of many
nations in the world, will drop the earth from their homeland on the same
spot and will thus build all together, by their common and repeated act
of dropping this soil, the "first stone" of the seatown. The act of building
the first stone of this seatown will be followed by an artistic happening
of poetry, music, a friendly gathering with all and a huge pic-nic.
