Shaping technologies to create sensory and critical experiences. Interactive media as a means of expression. Gestures, actions, interactions. Science and mind mysteries, the sensorial body source of awareness and essential truths. The ecology of the embodiment, the environment of sensations, we are one and many, we are human beings, we are forests. Perceived reality and public spaces, in nature nothing is superfluous, perceptions and spirituality, biodiversity is creativity. New paradigms and permaculture principles, the seed and the spirit, the game and the revelation, the pretext for questions and reflections. The tale and the vision, peasant poets and bards of Transition, the makers and the commons, social changes and essential needs. The time has now come.
