Delta del Llobregat

Organizer: Joaquín Jara, environmental sculptor especialized in ephimeral pieces.

In the framework of the Creative Europe project A Sea Change, and shortly after an interdisciplinary symposium on the Blue Economy, Quo Artis will organize a workshop on sound art and body connection with the marine ecosystem of the Llobregat Delta. It will be carried out by  environmental sculptor from  Barcelona Joaquín Jara. Through the use of listening and recording materials, as well as activities for connecting with the environment by touch, drawing or smell, the workshop will consist of a tour of the Delta area, recently threatened by the possible expansion of the airport of Barcelona – El Prat.

Listening to the human and nonhuman, the marine ecosystem and the surrounding airplanes, as well as interacting with the local flora and land, the workshop will collect and recover the sound, visual and haptic ecosystem of the area.
