The ecotone is a transitional environment between two ecosystems that promotes energy exchange and enriches biodiversity, in a way that is impossible to compare to adjacent ecosystems.
The research project approaches the topic from two closely related ecosystems: water and the beach.
The project investigates the possibility of triggering positive changes for the environment through the inclusion of objects capable of harnessing weak energy.
The replicable modules, made of clay, brick, and other geopolymers, integrate with the environment, particularly water resources, through their properties of flow, collection, infiltration, capillarity, and condensation, until they disappear.
The modules comprise a water desalinator, apotropaic signal, macro dunes and boulders with bioluminescence, a multi-function system for conviviality, and an animal water dispenser, a relational catalyst.
Advanced and traditional ceramics are expressed in objects with an atavistic heritage connected to places also through the site-specific material-chromatic study of experimental sand- and stoneware-based mixtures, capable of programmed erosions, and then returning to their origins.
