- Develop a composition in which the machinery of nature and machine of art become one, through a series of interventions and through the perception of the artists.
- A research that creates views and operates in-between reality and the different layers of the territory: the past, the contemporary economic culture, the temporal and spatial interrelationships.
- A reflection on the socio-cultural, architectural, language, habits characteristics of the place, the environment, the village, interlaced with man and the habits he lives of this environment.
Deadline for applications is 10 April 2012.
