Abstract

Based on Ehrenfried Pfeiffer's method of sensitive crystallization, the Cartographies of Metamorphosis artistic project exposes the vitality, in the form of mandala graphics, of the different horticultural products from Campo de Cartagena, a method that makes the intrinsic quality of the material visible organic. In 2016, the Mar Menor landscape collapsed for the first time and accentuated its state of environmental crisis, due in part to the dumping of large amounts of organic matter and nutrients of various kinds, but especially from agricultural and livestock activities. Made in the context of the environmental crisis of the Mar Menor, the sculptural and audiovisual installation metaphorically reflects on the new geological era coined by Paul Crutzen and the eutrophication landscape around the lagoon.
